Leave a gift in your Will
A legacy gift to EJA will help shape the future of Australia’s unique wildlife and landscapes while ensuring everyone has access to a healthy world. It will also help us safeguard our climate, and make sure generations to come can enjoy our world as much as we do.
Environmental Justice Australia was founded on the belief that everyone has the right to a healthy environment and that all living things should have the chance to thrive.
Since 1991, we have been a leading environmental law practice providing vital support for nature and community fighting to protect our forests, rivers, wildlife and communities. We advocate for environmental justice across Australia with a focus on communities who need support the most.
This important work to protect the people, places, and wildlife we love is only possible because of generous acts of giving. And the most extraordinary gift you will ever give us is in your Will.
Leave a legacy gift to EJA
“We’ve had firsthand experience in the value of Environmental Justice Australia. Without their expertise, groups like ours defending our environmental assets would be even further disadvantaged in counterbalancing highly financed, connected, and influential opponents.
We consider that protecting the environment for future generations is a natural legacy and responsibility of our very fortunate generation.”
– John and Robyn Pettigrew
Steps to leaving a gift in your Will
- Consider your loved ones – first, consider your loved ones and the causes to which you would like to leave a lasting legacy.
- Choose your gift – choose the type of gift you would like to leave. An impactful way to support EJA is through a residual gift. This is the balance remaining after your loved ones and expenses are provided for and will maintain the relative value of your gift over time.
- Create your Will – you can leave a gift in your Will by simply adding the following words when you next review your Will. The wording below is a guide for your solicitor or trustee:
‘I give to Environment Justice Australia (ABN: 74 052 124 375) of 60 Leicester Street, Carlton, VIC, 3053 for the purpose of safeguarding the environment [whole/residue of my estate] or [….% of my estate] or [the sum of $….] or [specified property….] free of all debts, duties or taxes and declare that the receipt of an authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge for my executor(s).’
- Get in touch – contact us to let us know you have left a gift to EJA in your Will. We would love the opportunity to thank you for your support. We will also keep you updated on our work and invite you and your family to special confidential briefings and events.
