Make protecting the natural world your legacy 

A gift in your Will to VNPA is a simple but powerful way you can continue to help care for and protect nature into the future. 

By leaving a gift in your Will you’re making sure you’re part of a strong, independent voice for Victoria’s amazing web of life. Your legacy will be intertwined with the protection of our public national parks, natural areas and wildlife habitats – no matter how long it takes or how hard it is. 

It is the support of people like you that has allowed us to be free from government and business interests for over 70 years, and it is from our community that we have learnt the value of tenacity and determination.

You know just as well as we do that protecting nature is about so much more than protecting wildlife and safeguarding our beautiful places. It’s about protecting the foundations for clean air and water, for a liveable climate and for a healthy society for generations to come.



Making your Will is one of the most important things you can do. 

A gift of just one per cent of your estate makes a significant difference to our work. It gives us the security to pursue long-term, impactful projects and campaigns for many years to come. 

Leaving a gift in your Will doesn’t need to be a complex process. 

We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions you might have here, and you can read about some of our wonderful supporters’ decisions to leave a gift for nature in their Will below. 

If you haven’t already written a Will, we have a simple checklist to assist you in taking this important step.
