Bequests

Bequests are traditionally a lasting way to say thank you to an establishment or organisation that does work that people respect and value. Individuals are invited to bequeath to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists when preparing a will. Bequests can be as small or large as liked, and are easy to arrange.

It is recommended that the following suggested bequest wording be adopted for the purpose of making a bequest to the College. It is a generic form of wording which will need to be modified in each particular circumstance.
