Yes. We welcome property bequests provided that you give permission to sell the land and use the funds for campaigning to protect Victoria’s environment. We’re an environmental advocacy organisation, so we’re much more effective at protecting the environment through funded lobbying and campaigning. You can place a conservation covenant on your property if you would like the lands natural diversity protected in perpetuity.
So we can thank you personally and invite you to join our Forever Green community!
