Suggested wording for your Will

Name of beneficiary: Neuroscience Research Australia

ABN: 94 050 110 346

"I give to the Neuroscience Research Australia (ABN 94 050 110 346):

  1. The residue of my estate; or
  2. [ ... ] percent of my whole estate; or
  3. [ ... ] percent of the residue of my estate; or

Most people choose to direct their gift to neuroscience research so it can be used in the research area of greatest need and where it will have the most impact.

To direct your gift to a specific area of research you can include a sentence to that effect in the first paragraph. For example: “I express the wish that the gift be applied for research into [disease] and associated disorders.”
