Gifts in Wills

When you think about preparing a Will, it’s only natural to consider your loved ones first and foremost. Many people also find a place in their Will to leave a legacy, to reflect other important aspects of their lives – the issues that concern them most and the causes they believe in.

We are grateful you are considering including a Gift in your Will for Australia for UNHCR. By remembering Australia for UNHCR in your Will, you will enable us to continue our lifesaving work, giving refugees protection beyond your lifetime. 

Your legacy will help the world’s most vulnerable people. Without your support, our work would simply not be possible.
