Support for Bush Heritage continues to grow. More than 1,400 people have made a decision to support our work through gifts in their Wills. In appreciation of this profound commitment from our supporters we were delighted to introduce, in early December 2015, the Bush Legacy Circle.

The Bush Legacy Circle gives us a platform to formally recognise and bring together supporters, both past and present, who've made a commitment to Bush Heritage Australia by leaving us a gift in their Will.

Membership of the Bush Legacy Circle is not just offered to bequest supporters, but is also extended to family members of bequest supporters who have passed away. This allows us to continue the special connection families have with our long-term conservation work.

The Bush Legacy Circle was officially launched  by current Board member and Bush Legacy Circle Advocate, Andrew Myer at Cranlana in Melbourne.

Known for its social, aesthetic, cultural and architectural importance to the State of Victoria, Cranlana was purchased in 1921 by businessman and philanthropist Sidney Myer and his wife Dame Merlyn Myer and continues to be owned and maintained by the Myer family.

It was therefore appropriate that in launching the Bush Legacy Circle Andrew Myer welcomed guests to his family home and read extracts from his grandfather's Will that emphasised the importance of philanthropy. Andrew then recounted his passion for the environment and his pride in supporting the work of Bush Heritage Australia through a bequest.

Over 80 of our supporters were able to join us on a warm and sunny day to celebrate the Bush Legacy Circle launch. They shared conversations about their connections to the environment and their shared belief that by leaving a gift to us in their Will, they're leaving a lasting legacy to help preserve and protect nature.
