DONATIONS

 Donations are gratefully accepted & anything of $2 and over are tax deductible.

BEQUESTS

Saving Endangered and valuable Arid Zone Flora through your Will
 A bequest that benefits a cause you care about deeply is the best insurance for future work of that cause.

We all wish for a long and healthy life, however, none of us knows what the future will bring. One thing we do know is that many of Australia’s unique arid zone plants will be lost to the world forever unless we work together to do something about it. Your bequest to The Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta Inc, will help us to support the valuable work of “The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta”  in preserving and educating the public about these unique arid zone plants.

Leaving a Bequest
Creating a legal Will gives you the opportunity to decide how your assets and possession are distributed after your death.

By including a bequest to The Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta you will enable us to continue supporting our wonderful Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden.

A bequest is a gift nominated in your Will to a non-profit organisation. Your solicitor can advise you about drafting an appropriate document. A suggested wording is shown below.

“I give to The Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta Inc, (ABN 72 979 332 415) free of all taxes and other deductions the amount of $…………..from my estate for its general purposes, and the receipt given on behalf of The Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta Inc. shall be sufficient discharge to my Trustee.’

 

Please note that it is important to include the full legal name of the organisation, which is:
Registered Name: The Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta Inc.
ABN: 72 979 332 415
Address: PO Box 2040 PORT AUGUSTA SA 5700

 Tax Issues
A bequest in the form of money will not attract capital gains tax. Unlike gifts made to The Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta in your lifetime, gifts made by Will are not tax deductable, and as you know, tax laws change regularly so please consult  a tax expert for the most up to date information.

 

Please let us know
We would be grateful if you would let us know if you decide to include The Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden Port Augusta in your Will, as it will give us the opportunity to say thank you in person! You can be assured all details are treated with the strictest confidence unless you advise otherwise.
