Make a future gift through your Will

Imagine a future where generations to come can still hear frogs croaking in their local creek, have the breathtaking experience of entering an old growth forest, watch birds nesting in floodplains, and have learned to live in harmony with our magnificent environment.

By leaving a gift to Environment Victoria in your Will, you can safeguard our environment and climate long after you’re gone. Your gift is your legacy – your chance to express your most cherished values and make a lasting commitment to creating a Victoria that’s Forever Green.

With our partnership with Gathered Here, Environment Victoria supporters can now write a Will for free online. Your Will through Gathered Here also comes with unlimited updates for life, meaning the legacy you leave to your loved ones can change and grow with you as your life changes.
