We strongly recommend that you seek the advice of a solicitor when developing your Will to ensure that you make the right choice and clearly articulate your intentions.

In general, MAGNT would prefer that your gift is made for general purposes. If you choose, however, to make a bequest for a stated purpose, we ask that you include the following provision in your Will: 

If at any time the Board of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory determines that it is impossible or impractical to fulfil the purpose of my bequest, the Board of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory may apply the bequest for a related purpose that will most nearly accomplish the purpose or is consonant with the spirit and intent of my bequest.
