Create your living legacy today – leave a gift in your Will to Bob Brown Foundation.

Did you know that by choosing to give a gift in your Will, you and your family can play an important, ongoing role in protecting our living Earth?

By making a bequest to Bob Brown Foundation you will ensure your wish for the ongoing protection of wild, natural places is respected. We invite you to join our special community of supporters choosing to leave a gift in their Will.

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 your family, you may like to consider a bequest to those groups that are working hard to stand up for issues you care about.

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 and we need your support to achieve this vision. 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 environmental protection campaigns throughout the country. The time is right for you – our spirited supporters – to partner with us and ensure more of this important work continues far into the future.

You can opt to make a gift of as much or as little as you feel is right. Every gift, large or small, is significant.

If you support our actions and share our vision to protect Australia's wild and scenic natural places of ecological and global significance, please join with us today. You’ll be taking on an important role in helping secure the protection of Australia’s natural environment – together we are taking Action for Earth.
