How will my gift help?

We can support West Australians living with Parkinsons through the Parkinson's Nurse Specialist service (PNS), Support Groups, Seminars, NDIS information, Community and Social activity affiliations, and an extensive hard copy and online resource library.  This is all available for those living with the condition as well as their families and carers.

We recommend that you seek the advice of a solicitor or Public Trustee when making your Will.   The information on this website or contained in our information pack is not intended to replace or substitute the advice of a qualified solicitor.

Is there a minimum amount required for my Legacy Gift?

Absolutely not - every donation, no matter its amount, makes a difference.

No amount is too small, and we are incredibly grateful to anyone who chooses to leave a Legacy Gift to Parkinson’s WA.

What kind of gift can I make?
  • A percentage of my estate
    The best form of bequest for most people is allocating a proportion of their estate to Parkinson’s WA. This allows you to decide the share of your estate that you believe is right. You don’t need to know exactly how much your estate will be worth as the gift will grow along with the growth of your estate.
  • A residual gift
    You can bequest the balance – or residue – of your estate to Parkinson’s WA after your family and friends have been looked after. This kind of gift automatically adjusts to the growth in the value of your estate.
  • A pecuniary gift for a specific amount of money
    Leaving a specific amount of money is a simple way of leaving a gift in your Will because you know exactly how much Parkinson’s WA will receive, regardless of any change in the value of your estate.
  • Property, possessions, shares or insurance
    You can leave a specific gift of property such as an insurance policy, shares, art works, land, jewellery or any other item of value.
  • Making a gift of land
    Parkinson’s WA welcomes gifts of real estate. If you are intending to leave us a gift of this nature, we encourage you to please contact us, so we can explore with you whether we will be able to retain or sell your land in the event it is given to us.
What wording do I need to add to my will?

I ……………………. leave to Parkinson’s Western Australia Incorporated of 11 Aberdare Road Nedlands WA 6009 – ABN: 88 404 764 099 (proportion of residue to be completed). My bequest is to be used for the general purposes of Parkinson’s WA. I declare that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.

Where should I start?

Call us on 6457 7373 and have a chat.  We will walk you through any questions you have.

Seek the advice of a qualified solicitor or trustee when making your Will as the correct wording for leaving a gift is very important. Your solicitor will provide you with more details about different types of gifts and what that may mean for your family.  If you need to find a solicitor, simply contact your local Law Institute or Association in your State or Territory as they can refer you to a solicitor in your area.

Let us know, we would love to know so we can say Thank you, we can then learn how gifts just like yours are making an impact today for clients.  By telling us of your intentions you will be helping us to plan for the future. Any information you provide will be treated with the utmost discretion.
