How your gift could help

Help us help people!

Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Red Cross in your Will.

We appreciate family and loved ones should always come first, but your gift could help us help thousands of people in Australia, and around the world.  

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

Our promise to you

Including a gift in your Will to support Red Cross is an important decision,
and it’s one that we want to make sure you are 100% happy with.
That’s why we make these promises:

  • We understand that your family and loved ones come first. All we ask is once you’ve looked after those closest to you, that you think about leaving a gift to support our work.
  • Our Will referral services and our National Solicitor Network come free of any obligation. We hope by using these you will consider leaving a gift for our work, but this is entirely up to you.
  • We will handle whatever gift you leave us efficiently, so that it can do the greatest good in the areas where it is needed most.
  • We recognise you have every right to change your mind about a gift in your Will at any time.
  • If you decide to leave a gift in your Will to Australian Red Cross, you are under no obligation to share this information with us. However we would find it helpful to know your wishes as it gives us the opportunity to personally thank you, and to plan for the future. Any information you share with us will be kept strictly confidential and will be used respectfully and appropriately. 

If we can help you with bequests, leaving a legacy in your Will or donating in memory, please call 1800 RED CROSS (733 276) or email us.
