Leaving a gift to CARE in your will
CARE Australia is generously supported by donations by the Australian public, enabling us to implement sustainable and scaleable life-changing projects in poor communities globally.
CARE Australia has been part of a global movement to overcome poverty and ensure tolerance and social justice for 25 years and we look to the future with continued commitment. Gifts in Wills ensure that in the future we will continue our work to empower women and girls in their communities to see our vision achieved.
Making a bequest
A solicitor, trustee company or Public Trustee will be able to provide advice and 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 discuss your decision to leave a gift in a Will and how this will benefit CARE Australia.
For information about bequests please call Lydia Hanna on 03 9009 7155.
