Make a Bequest

Bequests are often referred to as the gift that never stops giving.

A bequest (also known as a legacy) is a gift of money or assets that you leave through your Will. Bequests are critical to Project Hope Horse Welfare Victoria and the animals we support. They enable us to safeguard the vital community support services, ensuring we can continue to stand with horses in need.

By leaving a gift in your Will to Project Hope Horse Welfare Victoria you will help horses in need and our organisation to continue to provide the care and support we do to surrendered and neglected horses throughout the state.

What sort of people leave bequests?

Over the years there have been many bequests made to PHHWV by people who truly care about the welfare of equines and the tireless work PHHWV undertakes each year.

There are several types of bequests. Some are specified amounts of money, items of property or stocks and shares. Other bequests may be a percentage of an estate or the remainder of an estate once family, friends and taxes are taken care of.

You will need these details to make a bequest to Project Hope Horse Welfare Victoria in your will:

  • The organisation's name: Project Hope Horse Welfare Victoria
  • Address: GPO Box 1991 MELBOURNE 3001

Seeking the right advice

We suggest talking with your legal adviser when drawing up your Will to advise you on the 'how to' wording. As a suggestion we offer this wording

"I BEQUEATH to PROJECT HOPE HORSE WELFARE VICTORIA INC A0027152D, ABN 96 820 500 367 (:the Association), the receipt of whose Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the said Society shall constitute an absolute discharge to my trustees".

A specific gift - such as your home

"I give (residue clause) to the organisation called PROJECT HOPE HORSE WELFARE VICTORIA INC A007125D, ABN 96 820 500 367 (the Association) share and interest in my house known as (insert full address of the property) or other my principle house or flat at my death absolutely and i declare that the receipt in writing of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the said Associationshall be an absolute discharge to my Trustees".

Bequest FAQ

Can I leave my horse to PHHWV in my Will for them to be taken care of?

PHHWV is not in a position to guarantee they would be able to take your horse/s into care should you pass away. We would however always try and assist family members in some way in the event of your passing. 

Can I mention how I would like PHHWV to use my bequest?

Generally bequests are unconditional. If however you would like your bequest to be directed to a particular area, for example Education, you will need to have this written into your Will as part of your wishes.

If you have other questions please contact us.
