Doctors for the Environment Bequest Program

  

Will future generations inherit a healthy planet, a planet where all living creatures have an environment in which they can thrive?

By leaving a gift to Doctors for the Environment Australia in your will, no matter how big or small, you will ensure our work continues towards a healthier planet, and in turn healthier lives for your family, future generations and all living things.

WRITING YOUR WILL

Discuss your wishes with your family to ensure they understand that your charitable gifts are meaningful to you. 

You may need to update your will several times over your lifetime as circumstances change. It is important to review your will regularly to make sure it is still valid so that your wishes can be fulfilled. Your will can help preserve what has been important to you in your lifetime. 

If you have already prepared your will, you can still include a gift to Doctors for the Environment Australia by adding a Codicil or when you next update your current will.  Here are some ways you could leave a gift.
