Step 2: Decide what kind of gift to leave
– A residual bequest
– A specified amount

Sadly, as a consequence of poverty, too many children around the world are at risk of violence, illness, child labour and hunger. A child that faces these threats is less likely to go to school and get the education that could be the key to their future.

With your help, we can continue to give children the opportunity to learn, to eat nutritious food, to get the health services they need and to be kept safe.

When you choose to leave a gift in your Will to ChildFund Australia you have the opportunity to ensure a future where today’s children grow into strong, educated, empowered and engaged adults – who grow up to become parents and positive role-models for the next generation of children.

You can leave a gift in your Will and give children the support they need.

Because every child needs a childhood.

“Leaving a gift in my Will to ChildFund has been important to me. I know it will be used wisely. ChildFund is aware of where the poverty is and what the difficulties are, and will allocate the money according to the need.”

Frequently asked questions

If you make a gift provision in your Will to ChildFund Australia, you are giving a designated financial amount or percentage of your estate, in cash, property, securities or other assets, to help fund programs that ensure children in need around the world have a childhood. Leaving a gift to a charity in your Will is often called a bequest.

We have included recommended wording for your Will in the Gifts in Wills Guide that you can download on this website. We advise that you take this as the basis of a discussion with your loved ones, solicitor or public trustee. We appreciate that you may have particular interests you would like to discuss that may influence the wording so please get in touch. Our Philanthropy & Planned Giving Executive welcomes your obligation-free enquiries. All discussions will be confidential.

Leaving a gift in your Will to ChildFund Australia is one of the most thoughtful ways to support vulnerable communities into the future. Your gift shows foresight and commitment, but we understand it can be a private matter. If you do let us know about your gift, we can properly prepare to receive it, and plan ahead. We would also love to express our appreciation, keep you up to date with our work and invite you and your family to relevant special events.

ChildFund Australia is honoured to have the trust and support of people like you. Every gift, no matter how small or large, makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
