What your bequest could do

A legacy donation can change people’s lives

Leaving a bequest to a charity like Red Cross could mean everything for people here in Australia and across the world. Today these special donations are helping us react in disasters, ensure people have access to healthcare, provide better communities through befriending and mentoring programmes, and give people who are experiencing real hardship a helping hand when they need it most.

Your gift will enable Red Cross to be there in times of need
