Make a lasting difference

Have you ever wondered how the gift of reading can transform someone's life? A gift in your Will is the greatest commitment that you can make a lasting difference to the lives of children living in remote communities across Australia.

For example, a gift of $10,000 can provide 1,000 new books to communities across Australia, and a gift of $20,000 can establish a Book Buzz program in community and provide the tools for pre‑literacy learning so kids can start school with confidence. A gift of $35,000 can publish a book in language which can be used for generations to come. 

Whether large or small, a gift in your Will is greatly valued because it ensures that we can continue to provide our impactful and Community‑led programs free of charge to remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander remote Communities. 

You can include a bequest in your Will simply by contacting your solicitor with our Foundation's details.
