LEAVE A BEQUEST
What is a Bequest?
A bequest is a gift made through a Will. Bequests can be a specific sum of money from your Estate, a percentage of your Estate, the residue of your Estate after you have specified gifts for family and friends, or assets such as property, shares, collections and works of art. By describing in your Will what you would like to give and to whom (eg. an organisation or a person), you are making a bequest.
Leaving a Bequest to Mosman Art Gallery
Leaving a bequest to the Mosman Art Gallery will provide an enduring and timeless legacy now and for future generations. Gifts of all amounts are valued, and will assist the Gallery with the expansion of its programs, conservation of the collection, acquisition of art works, and capital works.
Every bequest, no matter how large or small, will contribute to the ongoing success of The Mosman Art Gallery.
The Gallery aims to build long-term relationships with its donors, and is very happy to discuss gifts or bequests made with a special purpose in mind.
Your notified bequest will be acknowledged by the Gallery, unless you would prefer for the notified bequest and gift to remain anonymous.
Mosman Art Gallery highly recommends that you seek the advice of a solicitor, trustee or legal professional when making your Will. The Gallery is not in a position to provide legal or financial advice in the making of your Will.
Updating your Will to include a Bequest to the Gallery
If you have already made a Will, and would like to add the Gallery to your Will, a codicil may be added. A codicil will allow the original terms of the will to be changed.
For further information please contact Ann Shoebridge, Philanthropy Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org or +61 2 9978 4164.
