What will future generations see as our legacy?

Will they experience our rare and beautiful wildlife? Will they marvel at the reef, the Range and our ancient forests as we do, and remember us for shaping a better future?

By giving a gift in your will, you will hand on a better, more beautiful world to your family, future generations and all living things. You can make this your living legacy.

Every gift, large or small, makes a difference.

WRITING YOUR WILL

Your will can reflect what has been important to you in your lifetime. Discuss your wishes with your family to ensure they understand your charitable gifts are meaningful to you.

You may need to update your will several times over your lifetime as circumstances change. It is important to review your will regularly to make sure it is still valid so that your wishes can be fulfilled.

You can include a gift to ACF when you first write your will, or next update your current one. Here are some ways you could leave a gift.
