Aligning your Will with your values

A Will gives you the power to choose how your life’s work and your assets will benefit your loved ones and the causes you care about most.

You have the power to help shape the future of Australia’s natural places – a future where our extraordinary landscapes and the plants and animals that they support remain safe.

The difference your gift could make

Gifts in Wills account for about 25% of our annual income.

When you remember Bush Heritage in your Will and let us know about your decision, you’ll be giving us the financial security to commit to the kind of long-term, landscape-scale projects across Australia that will result in real, lasting change for the environment.

Gifts in Wills have played an important role in the history of Bush Heritage and are recognised on our gifts in Wills supporter honour board.

Up to 25% of our income comes from bequests.

How to leave a gift in your Will to Bush Heritage

There are many ways to leave a gift to Bush Heritage in your Will, and it’s important to find the one that’s right for you.

Once you’ve considered which people and charities you’d like to remember, and who your executor will be, we recommend speaking with your solicitor to have your Will written.
