Arrange a bequest

Please consider leaving a bequest to Primary Ethics. Your gift will be used to assist young people develop the skills they require to become the responsible decision-makers of tomorrow.

What is a bequest?

A bequest is a gift left to a beneficiary in an individual’s will. This might be:


  1. A residuary bequest – the balance of the estate
  2. A percentage of the estate
  3. A pecuniary bequest – a specific sum of money
  4. Assets such as shares, works of art or real estate

Unrestricted or unspecified bequests to Primary Ethics will be allocated to the area of highest priority at the time that the bequest is realised. Unrestricted bequests are highly valued as they may be used to suit the needs of the organisation at the time.

A restricted bequest can be made for a specific purpose. If you wish to make a restricted bequest or to bequeath a culturally significant gift, we ask that you make contact with our Chief Executive Officer who can assist you with determining whether Primary Ethics is able to accommodate your wishes.
