Bequests, foundations & legacy programmes

A number of MOST® activities started as individual or family bequests.

What better way to honour your own or the wishes of a loved one than to establish an ongoing legacy in a specific area of creative or musical interest. For example, the Marianne Mathy Scholarship (‘The Mathy’), first awarded in 1982, remains the featured award of the IFAC Handa Australian Singing Competition; the Armstrong Martin Scholarship, first awarded in 1977, remains the respected award within one of our major Professional Development programmes, the Opera Awards (Australia). MOST® is experienced in managing the personal and legal issues involved in the establishment of bequests – and has a proven record in the development and administration of sucessful legacy progammes.
