Leave a gift in your will

A gift to Red Cross in your Will means 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.

Friends of Red Cross

By making a bequest to charity and leaving a gift to our work in your Will, you will join an honoured group of supporters within the Red Cross family: the Friends of Red Cross. Together, the Friends of Red Cross are shaping a world where people have somewhere trusted
and safe to turn for help, comfort and support, no matter what.

You will share in our achievements, connect with inspirational people and be part of our story. We celebrate our Friends of Red Cross today, and every day, for the hope that they inspire in our collective ‘tomorrow’. We are so grateful for their commitment, and we hope one day to welcome you amongst our Friends of Red Cross too.
