Your Will reflects what has been most important to you in life, and provides the opportunity to ensure that your most-cherished values live on.
A gift in your Will to Bob Brown Foundation will ensure that your wish for the lasting protection of wild, natural places is honoured.
We invite you to join our special community of supporters who have chosen to leave a gift in their Will to support our future conservation work.
Every gift, large or small, is appreciated and makes a difference to our capacity to stand up in defence of our beautiful natural world, forever.
Once you have provided for your loved ones, please consider including a gift in your Will to Bob Brown Foundation
We are the community taking action for Earth. Let a gift in your Will be your living legacy.
You can choose how you would like to leave your gift, including:
A residual gift. This is the simplest way to support our conservation work into the future. After providing for your loved ones and paying all debts, you can leave the remainder of your estate (or a percentage of the remainder) to Bob Brown Foundation. This type of gift has the advantage of guarding against the effects of inflation.
A cash gift. You can leave a specified dollar amount – but please remember that, over time, the real value of a cash bequest may reduce because of inflation.
A specific gift. You can leave property such as real estate, shares or anything of value. Bob Brown Foundation can also be the sole beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
Always seek independent legal advice when making or changing your Will.
Once you have decided on the type of bequest you would like to make, ask your solicitor to draft the appropriate clause. The following wording may be taken as a guide:
I give [percentage of my residuary estate/dollar amount/ specified assets] to Bob Brown Foundation Incorporated ABN 51 634 785 002 for its general purposes, and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.
We understand that making your Will is a very personal matter, and we will respect your confidentiality at all times. But if you’ve already included Bob Brown Foundation in your Will, or are considering doing so, please do let us know so that we can thank you properly.
This not only helps us plan for the future with more confidence, but also gives you the opportunity to discuss your wishes with us. We would be delighted to speak personally with you, if you wish, to tell you more about our work, and to talk through your bequest ideas.
