Bequests to the Pulteney Football Club

Many people care deeply about the Pulteney Football Club. It has meant different things to many people and has been a second home to some. Since its inception in 1936 these same people have supported the club at all levels.

The Pulteney Football Club does more than just play games each Saturday. It is a family who looks after and supports one another. It does its best to give back to the community when it can and one way that you can ensure that this work continues is to leave a bequest to the club in your will. A bequest is when you make a gift of your personal property to a person or organisation as follows:


Proportion

The most adaptable form of a bequest is a proportion or percentage of your estate. By using this kind of bequest you need not worry about the effects of inflation or changes in the size of your estate.

  • Specific Sum
    A specific bequest of money is a simple one but it can be reduced in value over the years by inflation and it remains fixed despite any increase or change in the value of your estate.
  • Property
    A specific bequest of property is one that nominates property, works of art, stocks and shares or insurance policies.
  • Residue
    When you have made provision for your family you may wish to leave the residue to the Pulteney Football Club.
Clauses

You can also include a clause in relation to leaving an amount of money to the club.
Suggestions for suitable clauses are:

“I give devise and bequeath the residue of my estate of whatsoever kind and where-soever situated to the Pulteney Football and I direct that the Secretary for the time being of the said Pulteney Football Club, shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executor/s.”

OR:

“I give and bequeath unto the Pulteney Football Club the sum of ……… dollars and I direct that the receipt of the Secretary for the time being of the said Pulteney Football Club, shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executor/s.”

You should discuss the various types of bequests with your solicitor who can ensure the correct clause is entered into your will.
