If you wish to make a bequest to the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter, it is important to include the correct wording in your will:

I give to the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter (ABN 49 735 037 904):

Ο The rest and residue of my Estate or

Ο _________ percent of my Estate or

Ο _________ percent of the residue of my Estate or

Ο The sum of  $_________________________

free of all duties and testamentary expenses for its general purposes and
I direct that the receipt of that organisation shall be sufficient discharge
to my executors for this bequest.


While you can write your own will, we strongly advise you to engage a legal professional who can ensure all details and considerations have been taken into account. This is especially the case if you wish to consider an endowment. You can find a solicitor through The Law Society of NSW.
