Gift In Your Will

You can help us provide solutions in alcohol and other drugs, mental health and training by leaving a bequest in your will to Healthy Options Australia.

Your gift will help Healthy Options Australia’s commitment to provide a range of health promotion and education programs aimed at maintaining healthy lifestyles.

Leaving a gift in your will is easy

Leaving a gift in your will is a simple process that could make a real difference.

If you do not have a will and wish to create one, it is a good idea to get legal advice. If you don't have a solicitor you can contact The Public Trustee in your state or territory.

If you already have a will, then all you need to do is add a codicil – a short legal amendment to your existing will.

Wording for your will

To include Healthy Options Australia in your will we suggest that you use the following wording (subject to legal advice):

“I give (free of all duties) the sum of $... to Healthy Options Australia and I direct that the receipt of its treasurer, secretary or public officer for the time being shall be an absolute discharge to my Trustee. I declare a general charitable intention in relation to this gift."

“I give (free of all duties) ….% of the whole of my estate to Healthy Options Australia and I direct that the receipt of its treasurer, secretary or public officer for the time being shall be an absolute discharge to my Trustee. I declare a general charitable intention in relation to this gift.”

“I give (free of all duties) the residue of my estate to Healthy Options Australia and I direct that the receipt of its treasurer, secretary or public officer for the time being shall be an absolute discharge to my Trustee. I declare a general charitable intention in relation to this gift.”
