Making a bequest

By including a bequest in your Will, you can have a lasting and meaningful impact on current and future generations. Give life-changing experiences for students and support scholarships, or support ground-breaking research and address key issues of sustainability, social justice and human rights.

You can direct to a particular area, our specialists can discuss your intent and preferences with you.

How do I include Monash University in my Will?

You can leave a bequest to Monash University by adding a codicil to your current Will or by drafting a new Will. We recommend that you seek advice from a solicitor. Law societies in every state of Australia publish lists of accredited specialists in Wills and estates. Trustee companies can also advise you.

As a Will is a legal document, it is best to ensure that the wording is precise.

The following bequest wording may be adapted by your legal adviser for inclusion in your Will:

"I bequeath to Monash University the whole of my Estate (or …...% of my Estate, the residue of my Estate or the sum of $ …………), free of all duties and deductions, to be applied for (either) the purposes of the University in such manner as the University may determine (or) the following purpose - describe your vision here. I direct that the receipt of Monash University shall be a good and sufficient discharge to my Trustee(s)."

The Matheson Society

Those who inform us of their intent to leave Monash University a gift in their Will are invited to join the Matheson Society, a community of like-minded people who will make a lasting impact on future generations. Society members are invited to Monash University events and meet our leaders, researchers and students.
