Enduring Action for Earth, its wildlife and scenic beauty

 

You and your family can play a significant role in protecting and preserving our living Earth. Join us and make a living legacy by leaving a gift to The Bob Brown Foundation in your will.

 

A will is an easy, practical way to make sure your final wish to go on saving nature, including wildlife and wilderness, is respected.

A carefully prepared will can provide great security, knowing the important things you care about are given enduring effect. Once you ensure your will provides for family, you may like to consider a bequest to The Bob Brown Foundation.

We all have this unique opportunity to stand up and support what we believe in. Please consider joining the community of special people that are choosing to leave a bequest. You can choose to make a gift of as much or as little as you feel is right. Every gift, large or small, is significant.

In making a bequest, we will always ask if you’d like to receive recognition for your intended bequest. We would like to be able to thank you for this special gift, and invite you to events from time to time with other supporters who have made this very special commitment.

Established after Bob retired from the Senate in 2012, our Foundation is surging ahead.

We have a wonderful opportunity to continue to build upon the great gains we've made to date. Our work has proven to be effective in saving Australia's wilderness and wildlife. Bob, and our small but very experienced staff, have taken important roles in raising campaigns throughout the country. The time is right for you – our spirited supporters – to join together as patrons and ensure we can take on more of this important work into the future, as we take action to protect our beautiful, natural places forever.

Your bequest to The Bob Brown Foundation will stop needless destruction of our natural environment and ensure more of our natural heritage is protected forever in national parks and internationally-recognised protected areas for years to come.

We are the community taking Action for Earth. Join us.
