Creating a future where no child fears for their life

By remembering Save the Children in your Will, you can help transform the lives of future generations.

The impact your gift will make

A gift in your Will can help children long into the future. It doesn’t have to be a large sum of money to make a difference and, of course, we know looking after your loved ones and your family comes first. But, by finding a place to remember Save the Children in your Will, you can help transform the lives of future generations born into poor communities around the world – including right here in Australia. 

 

Children are our future, and we can't keep neglecting them. I had been supporting charities all through my 40s and I thought this was going to be a worthy one. A bequest is ongoing. It's a gift that keeps on giving. I think that's wonderful, marvellous. I wish more people did it!

Save the Children supporter Dana, on why she decided to leave a gift in her will.

Your memory will live on and the world will be a better place for children because of it:

  • Children’s lives will be saved because they will have access to clean water, nutritious food and healthcare.

  • When their safety is threatened, and they are at risk of exploitation or abuse, children will be protected from harm. 

  • Children will get the education they deserve, so they can reach their potential and build themselves a brighter future. 

  • In emergencies, children will be protected and given support to rebuild their lives and recover from their traumatic experiences.

No matter where you are in life, choosing to leave a bequest to a charity like Save the Children can be one of the most fulfilling decisions of your life.
