Bequests

 

A bequest is a gift or donation made as part of your Will.  Leaving a bequest to Pain Foundation Ltd will help us provide funding to the researchers and clinicians of the Pain Management Research Institute (PMRI) so they can continue to work on providing comprehensive pain management solutions and lifting the burden of pain from the community.

If you wish to leave a gift in your Will to Pain Foundation Ltd, then you can leave the gift as:

  • a fixed dollar amount;
  • a percentage of your estate; or
  • the residue of your estate (after any other gifts you wish to make in your Will).

We have provided some sample bequest wording below for each of these types of gift that you may use. We suggest that you consult a legal adviser when preparing or updating your Will, to ensure that your wishes are accurately reflected.    

Your contribution to Pain Foundation Ltd is greatly appreciated and to thank you for your gift, you will receive a special place on our Page of Remembrance and Gratitude.
