Legacy Giving

Bequests and other planned gifts help us create a sustainable future

Everyone leaves a legacy. What will yours be?

A planned gift to Renew will inspire and enable people to live sustainably in their homes and help Australia thrive.

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference and identifies you as a Sustainer in our Community of Change.

When we reflect on what our legacy will be, loved ones always come first. For many Australians, there is also room to support programs and issues that we are passionate about by leaving a gift in our Will, or naming a charity as a beneficiary of our life insurance or superannuation.

By supporting Renew with a bequest, you are helping us to inspire, represent and enable sustainable living in households and communities across Australia. Your gift will help generate a tipping point in sustainability, creating a legacy that is both long-lived and without borders.

If you generously choose to leave a bequest to Renew, some important points to remember include:

  • Discussing your wishes with your family- let them know why Renew is important to you.
  • Consult a solicitor to help you complete your Will
  • If you already have a Will in place, you can add a codicil to support Renew

You can view and download our bequest brochure, contact us, or please call with any questions on 03 9631 5420 for further information.

How to leave a gift

You can leave renew a residuary gift (the balance remaining after loved ones are provided for), a specific gift of cash or property, or a proportion or percentage of your estate. Other giving options include shares, art, life insurance or superannuation beneficiary, and more. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

You may wish to make your gift through your Will in memory of someone special. Renew will mention the name of the person for whom the gift is made on our website and in our Annual Report.

The following words can be used in your Will to describe the type of gift you wish to leave to Renew. We suggest you share our bequest brochure when consulting your solicitor.
