LEAVING A GIFT IN YOUR WILL
A gift in your Will to AAPS will continue your support of animals and will help us to maintain our high standards of animal care and welfare.
Your bequest could include a percentage of your estate (residue) after you have provided for family and friends. You may prefer to leave real estate, assets, a specific monetary amount, or shares etc.
To make a bequest, what do I do? We strongly suggest that you consult a solicitor to ensure that your intentions are clear.
It is important that the correct wording is used, and that the correct title of ‘Australian Animal Protection Society’ is stated (rather than ‘The Keysborough Animal Shelter’, which is a colloquial term). Subject to more detailed advice from a solicitor, AAPS suggests inclusion of the bequest text, which you can find in our brochure.
If you would like further information download the AAPS bequest brochure.
For a confidential discussion about making a bequest to AAPS, please get in touch with the Shelter on (03) 9798 8415 and ask for a Committee Member to contact you.
