It will be your gift for the future.

Bequests are the most personal gift you can give. It is an extraordinary act of generosity and a way to make a significant difference beyond your lifetime.

By leaving a bequest for the Gardens in your Will, you will help to preserve and sustain the Botanic Gardens of Sydney as places of enjoyment, education and scientific research for tomorrow's generations.

You have the power to help shape the future of these vital green spaces and ensure they are available for future generations to enjoy.

A bequest is an instruction in your Will to leave a gift to a specific person, organisation or charity. Bequests provide the opportunity to provide lasting support to a cause that reflects your interest and passions. You can designate a percentage of your estate, a specified gift of an amount or item, a residual gift or your whole estate.   We recommend you consult a solicitor before making a bequest to receive guidance that ensures your wishes are fulfilled.

Bequests aren’t just for the wealthy. Every gift, no matter how large or small, helps to protect the future of the Gardens and plant sciences. You just need to have a desire to leave a lasting impact for future generations to come.
