I'm drafting a Will with a gift to Cancer Council WA

Simple guide to including a gift in your willSome suggestions to consider when drafting a gift in your Will.

Have a conversation with family and friends

Let them know your wishes, and how you would like your estate to be distributed.

Get an understanding of your assets

Make a list of your assets, items may include shares or a property.

Think about who you would like to benefit

Decide who should benefit from your Will. This may include family members, friends and charitable organisations. We encourage you to think of your loved ones first and then consider a gift in your Will to us.

We encourage you to seek legal advice

Select a practicing solicitor or trustee company to act as your professional advisor.  This ensures your Will is legally correct and your wishes will be followed accurately.  We have prepared some suggested clauses for the gift in your Will to help in drafting your Will.
