Residuary Gift 

The residue of your estate is what is left after loved ones are provided for and any outstanding debts have been paid. A residuary gift could be a percentage or the whole of the residue of your estate. A gift left in this way will not lose its value over time and is best way to ensure that family and loved ones come first, while also providing the most possible help to Hadassah Australia 

Pecuniary Gift 

This is a gift of a fixed amount of money or other property such as shares. However, it is worth pointing out that the effects of inflation could mean that the actual value of this gift is reduced over time. If you are considering leaving a cash gift, we respectfully suggest that you consider inflation-proofing the legacy. Please see Suggested Wording for your Will for an example of how this can be done. 

Specific Gift 

This is the gift of a specific item such as property, art or jewellery which can be sold to support our work. You can decide whether you want to specify how your gift is used, or simply trust us to put your gift to its very best use. As we face new medical challenges in the future, the more flexibility we have to invest your gift in the best way possible, the better our chances of saving lives.
