Rob’s Dogs was started with money from Rob’s estate when he passed.
You can join him in helping make life better for animals in Asia by leaving us a bequest – this will enable you to support, or continue supporting, our work after you cross Rainbow Bridge. It will become your legacy.
We’re often not able to give as generously during our lives as we might like to. Leaving a gift in your Will is a great way to support the vital work of Rob’s Dogs if you have been unable to in your life, or increase the level of giving to Rob’s Dogs.
By leaving a charitable gift in your Will – either a percentage of your Estate, a specific sum of money, or other assets – you will have a positive impact on the lives of countless animals in Asia.
Your gift, whether large of small, will be gratefully received by Rob’s Dogs. If you have any questions about leaving a charitable gift in your Will, please contact us.
THE FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF GIFTS
There are four main types of gifts you can leave in your Will, including those you may leave to Rob’s Dogs. Please discuss with your solicitor the type of gift that will best suit you and your Estate.
One of the most common ways to leave a charitable gift, a residual gift is the remainder of your Estate after first leaving gifts to your loved ones and payment of any financial commitments, funeral arrangements etc.
I leave to ROB’S DOGS FOUNDATION of 5 Aquinas Court, Hoppers Crossing, 3029 Charity ABN: 48 630 436 378 (proportion of residue to be completed) for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.
2. PECUNIARY OR SPECIFIC
Another common way to leave a charitable gift, a pecuniary or specific gift clearly specifies the donation. It can be money, property, stocks and/or shares.
I leave to ROB’S DOGS FOUNDATION of 5 Aquinas Court, Hoppers Crossing, 3029 Charity ABN: 48 630 436 378 (description of item) absolutely for the general purposes of the said charity and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.
3. PERCENTAGE OR FRACTIONAL
This is a gift expressed as a percentage or fraction of your Estate. Dividing your Estate by a percentage or fraction takes into account the changing value of your Estate which can occur due to factors such as inflation, property fluctuations and changes to the composition of your Estate over time.
4. WHOLE ESTATE
This comprises your entire Estate and is usually left by those without family or other preferred beneficiaries, or those wanting to achieve something very significant with their gift.
Charitable gifts in Wills of property, stocks and shares are exempt from capital gains tax.
