Your Will is your legacy

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

Not only does it ensure your affairs are settled exactly as you wish, but by leaving the Victorian National Parks Association a gift in your Will to, you’ll continue to protect Victoria’s natural heritage for future generations.

Because we are a not-for-profit, non-government, totally independent organisation, we depend almost solely on the generosity of our members and supporters to fund our ongoing work.

Your gift, large or small, will make a significant difference to our work, funding projects and campaigns which may not otherwise be possible. A gift in your Will also helps to ensure the Victorian National Parks Association will always be there to stand up for Victoria’s national parks, amazing natural places and wildlife.

Making a Will

The need not be complicated or expensive, but we do recommend that you seek the services of an Australian lawyer to make sure your wishes and intentions are recorded correctly.

We suggest the following wording as a guide:

I bequeath to the Victorian National Parks Association Inc. [ABN: 34 217 717 593] the…
residue of my estate OR [insert percentage]% of my estate OR sum of $[insert specified sum]
….for general purposes free of all duties. The receipt of the treasurer, secretary or other authorised officer shall be a complete and sufficient discharge to my trustees.
