It's Include a Charity Week from 5-11 September 2016, with Australians being encouraged to make a positive difference after they are gone.

Your Will is your legacy. It can also be a lasting gift to Australian children – the gift of a better future.

Barnardos Australia is a proud member of Include a Charity, a group of more than 140 of Australia’s most respected charities working together to highlight the role gifts in Wills play in benefiting those in need. Three out of four Australians support charities throughout their lifetime, but only 7.5% leave a gift in their Will to their most loved charities.

Include a charity aims to make including gifts in Wills a normal part of Will making and raise awareness that bequests are made by ordinary, hardworking Australian’s not just the wealthy.

Every year gifts in Wills help change the world, to read more about the campaign visit Include a Charity.
