Every bequest, large or small, makes a lasting impact.
Leaving a gift in your Will, or a bequest, to the University of Tasmania is a significant way to make an enduring contribution to the community. Your help can develop study and research in an area which is important to you. Your generosity will make students' lives easier and help advance Tasmania.
There are several options to consider when making a bequest including: a gift of money; a property; land; shares; artwork or other item of value; or a residual bequest.
A residual bequest
A residual bequest is the remainder of your estate after family and friends have been provided for and expenses in finalising your estate have been met. A residual bequest is a popular choice because it maintains the relative value of your gift in comparison to the value received by the other beneficiaries under your Will. It also automatically adjusts to changes in the value of your estate.
Suggested wording for your Will
I give (insert amount or the residue of my estate) to the University of Tasmania Foundation Inc. ABN 73 744 631 571, of Churchill Avenue, Sandy Bay, Tasmania, for research, bursaries, scholarships, or general purposes relating to the education of students of the University of Tasmania.
