Where there’s a will, there’s a way…

When you leave a bequest in your Will to Caritas Australia, you help us plan our long-term, life-giving activities of aid and development. Legacies are crucial to our income; we simply could not do what we do without them.

With every gift, small or large:

  • You enable Caritas to help families whose lives have been devastated by natural disaster or conflict
  • You enable Caritas to support communities for the long-term through sustainable development programs. This encourages self-reliance and enables the poorest of the poor to live a life of dignity
  • You enable Caritas to promote a just and compassionate society at home and abroad

A will bequest to Caritas is a simple way to continue caring, and ensures your passion for a Just World lives on far into the future. Leaving a percentage of your estate, a sum of money or other assets in your will won’t cost you a cent today but it will have a huge impact on future generations. We understand that family and friends come first and once you have taken care of your loved ones, please take a moment to consider leaving a bequest in your will to Caritas Australia. It will make a real and lasting difference.

For a number of years, Caritas has been one of the organisations I have supported with my donations. I have always been attracted to their practical approach dealing with the real needs of people around the world and at home. When I recently updated my will, I decided to make a bequest to Caritas. While hopefully that will be some years in the distance, I do hope the amount will make a difference to people’s lives.”
