Leaving a gift to CARE in your will
The Australian public is very generous in its support of CARE Australia's vision to see a world of hope, tolerance and social justice where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security. CARE Australia has been part of a global movement to achieve this vision for 25 years and we look to the future with continued commitment.
We hope you are inspired to support our efforts by leaving a bequest in your Will.
Making a bequest
We advise you to contact a solicitor, estate planner or trust company to assist with the drafting of your Will. They are able to provide advice on how best to represent your wishes for leaving gifts to family, friends and charities.
You may wish to advise CARE Australia that you are leaving a bequest gift or explore how a bequest gift can help CARE Australia achieve its vision.
For information about making a bequest gift to CARE Australia please contact Dr Emily McCaffrey on (03) 9009 7130 or at email@example.com.
