Bequest to our Charitable Foundation
How a Bequest to the Australian Cord Blood Foundation will help our mission
However large or small, your bequest to the Australian Cord Blood Foundation will make a difference. It will allow Australia's largest public cord blood bank to focus their attention on enhancing curative treatments using cord blood for a range of medical conditions.
Your generous bequest will be directed (unless specified) to the most appropriate areas of cord blood research and development (including infrastructure) that require funding.
How to leave a Bequest to help the Foundation continue their Research
The Australian Cord Blood Foundation recommends you seek legal advice when preparing or revising your Will. It is a legal document that allows you to advise how you would like your assets distributed.
This can include:
- A Specific Bequest - A gift of a specific nominated asset like a house or parcel of shares or a specific amount of money.
- A Percentage - A nominated percentage of your Estate.
- A Residual - What remains of your Estate after all debts have been paid and all other gifts distributed.
(please include your bequest option here).......... and I direct that the receipt of the
Chair, Treasurer, or Secretary of such organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge to
my trustee for the payment of such benefit.'
Let us Thank You
If you have already remembered The Australian Cord Blood Foundation in your Will or are considering doing so, we would appreciate you letting us know so that we can thank you personally and you will become an Australian Cord Blood Foundation Partner.
As an Australian Cord Blood Foundation Partner you will be invited to special functions where you will hear from leading cord blood researchers and meet fellow Foundation Partners who share your act of generosity and desire to contribute to the field of cord blood transplantation.
However if you prefer to remain anonymous, please know that we are extremely grateful and encouraged to know that people like you are also dedicated to our vision.
