Leaving a gift in your Will to MSWA

LEAVING A GIFT IN YOUR WILL GIVES HOPE

MSWA is proud to be Western Australia’s leading contributor to neurological research. By leaving a gift in your Will, you can help us continue to look for causes, cures, and better treatments – and help give hope to people living with a neurological condition, their families, and future generations.

Additionally, your bequest will help us provide personalised care and support services, residential respite, and high support accommodation across the metro and regional areas of WA. Every gift we receive helps us to continue our important work now and into the future.

WHAT IS A ‘GIFT IN WILL’?

A ‘Gift in Will’ or ‘bequest’ is a donation left to a charity or not-for-profit in your Will. The donation is distributed to your chosen beneficiaries on your behalf once the Will is finalised.

There are three common examples of types of gifts you can leave: A specific sum, A percentage of your estate, The Residue of your estate. You can see specific wording to use here.
