Leave a Legacy

You can provide for family, and leave a gift for forests, rivers, oceans and wildlife in your will.

By giving a gift to ACF in your will, you can play a vital role in protecting our lives and all life around us.  A living legacy.  Every gift, large or small, makes a difference. 

Your will can reflect what has been important to you in your lifetime. 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?

We think they will. By giving a gift in your will, you can make this your living legacy– an exceptional gift indeed. 

You can leave ACF a residuary gift, a specific gift of cash or property, or a proportion or percentage of your estate.  Our suggested wording for a will is:

“I give the rest and residue…

OR

“I give [insert description of specific gift]

OR

“I give [insert percentage] %

of my estate free from all debts (secured and unsecured) and all duties and taxes (whether federal or state) payable in respect of my estate to the Australian Conservation Foundation Incorporated (ABN 22 007 498 482) (“ACF”) for its general purposes, and I declare that the receipt of an authorised officer of the said ACF shall be a full and sufficient discharge of this bequest.”

We would love to know once you have included ACF in your will – to thank you and invite you to our ACF Living Legacy community events and special occasions. Please let us know!
