Mia Polykarpou left about half her estate of $1.4 million to a not-for-profit corporation, Oprah Angel Network. That entity didn’t exist at the testator’s death. In Estate Polykarpou; Re a charity  NSWSC 409 the court firstly considered whether the gift was for a charitable purpose – the purpose not being expressed in the will. The court applied the principle that a gift to a charitable institution was prima facie a gift for a charitable purpose (at [64(h)]). There being no gift-over or substitution provisions in the will, the court next considered whether the will disclosed a general charitable intention so that the trust property should be applied cy-pres. The court was so satisfied and the trust was referred to the Attorney-General to establish such a scheme.
