BEQUESTS

Leaving a bequest to Clean Up Australia..

Bequests to Clean Up Australia will help us to run a number of programs that benefit people and the environment. These programs include:

Clean Up Australia Day, Australia's biggest community environmental event that has lead to the removal of an estimated 200,000 tonnes of rubbish from our parks, bushland, waterways and beaches.

Clean Up the World, in which over 35 million people from more than 110 countries participate in clean up events and environmental projects each year.

Clean Up Our Climate, where we work with communities and business to provide advice and assistance on how every one of us can help limit our impact on our rapidly changing climate.

Types of Bequest

Proportion
The most adaptable form of a bequest is a proportion or percentage of your estate.
By using this kind of bequest you need not worry about the effects of inflation or changes in the size of your estate.

Specific Sum
A specific bequest of money is a simple one but it can be reduced in value over the years by inflation and it remains fixed despite any increase or change in the value of your estate.

Property
A specific bequest of property is one that nominates property, works of art, stocks and shares, or insurance policies.

Residue
When you have made provision for your family and friends you may wish to leave the residue to Clean Up Australia.

Please find below the correct wording to use when making a Bequest to Clean Up Australia:

I give _______________ to the Clean Up Australia Limited's (ABN 93 003 884 991) public fund, Clean Up Australia Environment Fund (or if it ceases to exist the successor to its assets) for the furtherance of its objects and mission to inspire and work with communities to clean up, fix up and conserve the environment.  The receipt of any director, secretary or other officer is an absolute discharge to the executors for the legacy.

Please email Clean Up Australia at cleanup@cleanup.org.au should you require further information.
