Leaving MND NSW a gift in your Will can make all the difference to people living with motor neurone disease. Your valuable gift will form a key part of the Association's long-term income and help us to continue providing essential equipment, information, support and advice for people living with MND, their families and carers. It will also help us to continue funding research for better treatments and ultimately a cure for MND!
The Blue Cornflower Society, named after the symbol of hope for people living with MND, has been formed to recognise benefactors, like Pamela, supporting the vital work of the MND NSW.
"I often wondered why John, the girls and I, never asked the questions; 'Why John, why us, why our family'? It was only looking back that I understood that with motor neurone disease the question is 'Why anyone'?
There are two other issues that need to be addressed. They are the appointing of an Enduring Guardian and giving someone your Power of Attorney.
Suggested wording for your bequest to the Motor Neurone Disease Association of NSW
To make a Will, we strongly advise that you make an appointment with a solicitor or trustee company. However, there are five steps in preparing your Will.They are:
Lorrie and Noel built their house in 1975 – a home that has been filled with laughter and tears. Perched high on a ridge north of Sydney, they look out over the beautiful Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.
MND NSW needs over $3 million every year to continue to provide services. Fifteen per cent of our income is recurrent funding from the NSW Government, meaning we rely on fundraising for nearly $2.5 million per annum.
When you originally wrote your Will, whether five or twenty five years ago, your life would have been different from what it is today. Perhaps others depended on you then more than they do now. Perhaps previously named beneficiaries have died or you have new additions to your family and new causes that you care about.
