Potoroo Palalce Native Animal Education Sanctuary LTD is a not for profit organisation that is recognised as a charity by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. It is operated solely on donations, and contributions from it’s founder Alexandra Seddon.  As the organisation grows, so do its needs. The number of animals in care has been growing as does the sanctuary’s fame and popularity. Much of the time not spent looking after animals in care is spent maintenance, grounds, infrastructure, training, education and on copious amounts of administration!

Donations are used to provide feeds as well as tools, equipment,veterinary bills, transport costs etc, and staff wages which are minimal as so many of our staff also very generously volunteer much of their time.

Bequests

One of the most valuable ways you can help Potoroo Palace continue to care for, protect animals in need and the environment is by leaving a bequest in your will.

How do I leave my gift?

Your gift to a charity or other organisation can take one of a number of forms, including:

• a specific gift of money, property or stocks and shares

• a percentage of your estate that takes inflation into account

• a residual gift of whatever is left after all your other gifts, taxes and debts have been paid

• the entire estate

We recommend you include the following in your will:

“I give devise and bequeath to Potoroo Palace:

(a) the whole of my Estate of whatsoever kind and wheresoever situate

(b) ………… % of my Estate

(c) and/or the sum of $ ….. free of all duties and taxes payable at my death and I declare that the receipt of the CEO or other Proper Officer for the time being of Potoroo Palace shall be sufficient discharge for my trustees. It is my wish and intention that these funds be retained and used in full by Potoroo Palace and not distributed to any other affiliate.”

Note: choices (a), (b) and (c) should be followed by the statement, “after the payment of all my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses and all duties, taxes and charges payable on my Estate at my death.”

Potoroo Palace recommends you seek professional advice or the assistance of a solicitor when preparing your will, and thank you for considering supporting Potoroo Palace with a bequest.
