Bequest a gift in your will

Leaving a bequest to charity

With a legacy donation to Red Cross, your memory will live on

How do you want to be remembered? Your sense of humour? Your love of dancing? Your determination to help others? What would be the one thing you would pass on to the next generation? 

Throughout our lives we’re influenced by the actions of the generations that come before. From grandparents and parents to school teachers and sports coaches, whether it’s knowledge, a skill or a passion, what you choose to pass on makes a positive difference to the next generation.

With a legacy donation you will pass on a helping hand to people who need it most. Your bequest will make an unforgettable difference to generations to come, both in Australia and around the world.

By making a legacy donation to Australian Red Cross, you will send a powerful humanitarian message to the next generation, in Australia and all over the world.

What your gift could do
