Would you like to continue to support your beloved Double Blues even after you have gone?
Well you can, by leaving a bequest to Sturt Football Club in your will.
A bequest is when you make a gift of your personal property to a person or an organization in your will and by having a legal will you can avoid any confusion that may arise concerning your last wishes.
Why leave a bequest to the club?
Sturt Football Club was formed in 1901 and in the past 118 years has won 15 league premierships, been in numerous grand finals, won many other lower grade premierships, has had numerous Magarey Medallists and other award winners and above all has been a fixture in the local community.
The club has seen many champions of the game including names such as Golding, Richardson, Morton, Fitzgerald, Halbert, Bagshaw, Davies, Graham, Motley, Sheedy and Kirkwood just to name a few and above all has brought so much pleasure to so many.
By leaving a bequest to the club in your will you will be helping to ensure that the club remains strong and will continue for generations to come, so that they may witness, as you have, the premierships and champions of the future.
Please ensure that your loved ones have been taken care of and once this has been done your bequest to Sturt Football Club can take a number of forms –
- it can be a percentage of the value of your estate (this then protects against inflation and/or changes in circumstances)
- the whole or part of the residue of your estate after you have provided for loved ones
- a fixed amount of money, property, shares, works of art, antiques, insurance policies and/or any other item of value
While there are several types of bequest clauses, the following is the most commonly used for a general bequest –
“I give to Sturt Football Club_____% of my Estate, OR_____% of the residual of my Estate, OR I give to Sturt Football Club the sum of $____________ to be used for its general purposes. The receipt of an authorised officer of Sturt Football Club will be sufficient discharge to my Executor/Trustee.”
Sturt Football Club is not qualified or authorised to provide legal advice, so to ensure that your wishes are clearly and legally stated, you should discuss the various types of bequests with your solicitor who can ensure that the correct clause is entered into your will or our legal advisers can provide further information on the different types of bequests and on the appropriate wording.
Your generosity would make a huge difference to the club. If you would like to make a bequest to the club or if you require further information, please contact –
