Gifts in wills

Leaving CCWA a gift in your Will

CCWA supporters care passionately about protecting WA and many of our generous funders want to ensure their support lives on and that WA's iconic nature is safeguarded for future generations to enjoy.

Preparing your Will is the best way to make sure your wishes and intentions are followed and ensure that you leave a lasting legacy you can be proud of.

After providing for loved ones, many Australians embrace the opportunity to leave a gift to an organisation close to their heart. It’s simple to leave a gift in your Will (known legally as a Bequest).

If you wish to make a bequest to CCWA, it is important to include the correct wording in your Will:
