ABS Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

Leaving a gift in your Will to The Australian Ballet School is one of the best and lasting ways to make a difference to our students’ lives and the future and vitality of ballet in Australia and beyond.

We will maximise the impact of your legacy and look after your gift with sensitivity, care, transparency and accountability. We understand your Will is a personal document and reflects how you want to look after your family and friends and that your circumstances may change. We recommend when including the School in your Will, you seek professional legal advice to ensure your wishes are recorded in a legally binding way.

If you are intending to make a gift in your Will, we would like to know so we can say thank you, keep you well informed about our work and invite you to special events at The Australian Ballet School. If you prefer to remain anonymous, we will honour this also.

The following wording is a guide for your legal adviser for leaving a gift in your Will to The Australian Ballet School: “I give and bequeath (% of Estate, $ amount, or Gift free of all duties and taxes payable at my death) to The Australian Ballet School Limited (ABN 18 004 852 1080) (the School) of 2 Kavanagh Street, Southbank in the state of Victoria, to be used for its general purposes 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. I direct that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the School shall be a good and sufficient discharge to my Trustees and my Trustees shall not be bound to see to the application of this legacy.”
