A gift in your Will protects Australian birds and their habitats for generations to come.
Now is the time to include Australian birds in your Will. A bequest of any size (even 1% of the residuary of your estate, after taking care of loved ones), is a welcome contribution to Australian birds under threat.
Your bequest will be used to make a real and positive difference for a wide range of Australia’s species – ensuring these precious birds and their habitats are around for future generations to enjoy.
To find out more about leaving a bequest or to learn how your gift will be used, please contact our team.
To ensure maximum impact of your bequest to Birdlife Australia– we suggest the following:
‘I give, free of all debts and all duties and taxes, [insert here the details of the bequest eg: residual /pecuniary] to BirdLife Australia (ABN 75 149 124 774) or its successors, for its principal purposes. I declare that the written receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer of BirdLife Australia may be accepted by my Executors as a full and complete discharge of this bequest.’
We would love to recognise your gift during your lifetime. You can discuss with our Bequest Officer if and how you would like to be remembered and or acknowledged by us. However, we will always respect your wishes if you choose to remain anonymous and your legacy will therefore remain private and unpublished.
You can pay tribute to your loved one by making a donation in their memory, supporting BirdLife Australia's research and conservation projects.
Crucial coastal and wetland habitat is being destroyed – and migratory shorebird populations are declining rapidly. Your urgent donation will help give our migratory shorebirds safe homes to rest and feed.
