You can leave your entire estate or any part of your estate to World Vision Australia.
Not sure how much will be in your

We cannot provide you with specific legal advice, so please ensure you obtain your own independent legal advice on the most appropriate wording.

Alternatively, you can use an online option. We’ve partnered with Gathered Here, a free and easy step-by-step online Will writing service. It takes less than 10 minutes.
A Will gives you the power to choose
how your assets can benefit your loved ones and impact vulnerable children
around the world. You can find out more in our complimentary bequest brochure. Preparing your Will needn’t be complex, nor expensive, but we
recommend you seek the advice of a legal advisor to ensure your Will is valid,
and clearly set out the way you intend your estate to be distributed.
