A Will is a legal document therefore it is in your best interest to ensure that the wording is precise and does not include statements that can be misinterpreted.
It is important that the Cabrini Foundation is clearly identified in the wording of your Will.
The Cabrini Foundation overseas and guides all fundraising activities, donations and bequests on behalf of Cabrini.
We suggest you use the following:
“I leave to the Cabrini Foundation at Cabrini Health, ABN 33 370 684 005, the whole of my estate [or… the residue of my estate / or % of my estate / or the sum of $…. / or description of property]free from all duties and deductions, to be applied for its general purposes in such a manner as Cabrini Health may determine[or name a specific purpose or area such as research, oncology, cardiac services, educational scholarships].
