Using your Will to change the world forever

Forever People are the men and women who have determined that one of the lasting legacies of their lives will be to help preserve and sustain an Earth where all life can flourish.

One of the most significant ways to leave a lasting legacy to the values and priorities that you have championed throughout your life is to leave a donation in your Will to WWF-Australia.

Large or small, when you make a donation in your Will, you are providing our wildlife a voice for the future. You are giving WWF the power to always be there, speaking up for nature and ensuring its security, now and for generations to come.

The power of your Bequest

For over 50 years, the donations people have left to WWF in their Wills have awakened the environmental conscience of the world, and changed the way the Earth – its outstanding places and most treasured wildlife – is cared for.

Your Bequest could protect the Heart of Borneo, the only place on Earth where orang-utans, pygmy elephants, rhinos and clouded leopards share the forest.

Your Bequest could support the ambitious global plan to double wild tiger numbers by 2022, reversing the tiger’s decline to extinction.
Your Bequest could empower WWF’s commitment to a national system of marine parks to give Australia’s ocean wildlife unparalleled protection from harm.

Your Bequest could recover endangered wildlife in the southwest corner of Australia, home to thousands of species of flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world.

From our Bequestors


As the father of two young children, the protection of our natural world is more important to me than ever before. Through my Bequest to WWF I can give my children the greatest gift of all – the hope of clean air, fresh water and a healthy planet.

Nick Heath

The older you get, the more you seem to care for what you have neglected for so many years, and see conservation in a different light.
… without nature we have no future.

Frank Peel & Jenny Savron

We have long held a deep love and concern for the preservation of endangered species. Leaving a Bequest is the best way that we can give something back to the world that has given us so much pleasure and so many wonderful experiences.
