Consider leaving a bequest to The Australia Institute

By leaving a gift in your Will, you can create a better Australia

The Australia Institute is one of the country’s most influential public policy think tanks. We conduct high impact research that combines rigorous fact-driven material with cutting-edge communication strategies to drive public debate on issues such as tax reform, climate and energy, democracy and accountability, the environment, international and security affairs, law, society and culture.

By choosing to give a gift in your Will, you and your family can play an important role in helping us to build a better Australia.

We are fiercely non-partisan, but we don’t shy away from engaging in politics and political debates. We believe in democracy and our work is aimed at a better, more informed democratic debate.

By making a gift in your Will to The Australia Institute you can help to secure a better future for generations to come.

A carefully prepared Will can provide great security, knowing the important things you care about are given enduring effect. Once you ensure your Will provides for your family, you may like to consider a bequest to those groups that are working hard to stand up for issues you care about.

You can opt to make a gift of as much or as little as you feel is right. Every gift, large or small, is significant.

Some suggested wording to use in preparing your Will

Your Will should always be prepared with professional advice from your solicitor. The following wording is a guide for your solicitor but provides the basic information, including the Australia Institute’s full legal name and our ABN, required for a bequest.
