Leave a gift in your Will

Australia is a wealthy nation, yet many in our community still live in poverty. You can make change that lasts by remembering the work of BSL when you make or amend your Will.

Why leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will helps us create a better future for people experiencing poverty. You will also help us tackle the root causes of poverty. Once you have made provision for those you love, a gift in your Will to us is a testimony to your compassion.

How to leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is easy. If you already have a Will, you may add a codicil to include BSL. If you do not have a Will, we highly recommend you seek professional advice.
