Leave a Bequest

Would you like to be part of QCC’s mission to protect the environment, wildlife and landscapes, conserve our precious natural resources and make Queensland businesses and communities more sustainable?

By making a bequest for QCC in your will, you are helping this mission and in turn creating your own environmental legacy for future generations.

Your legacy gift will allow QCC to continue to work with our allies to:

  1. Save: Queensland’s koalas by stopping the bulldozing of koala habitat.
  2. Speed Up: Queensland’s transition away from fossil fuels by promoting renewable energy.
  3. Cut: Climate pollution by advocating for a statewide climate action plan.
  4. Create: New National Parks through a well-funded Protected Areas Strategy for Queensland.

Types of Bequest

Specific Bequest

You specify the amount that you wish to go to QCC.

Percentage Bequest

You specify the percentage of your estate that you wish to go to QCC.

Residual Bequest

You bequest to QCC what is left of your estate after you provide for family and friends.

Endowment Bequest

You set up a trust fund and the interest from the fund is directed straight to QCC.

Suggested Wording

Your will is a very important legal document and needs professional attention. Seek the expert advice of a solicitor or trustee company when making or updating your will and be satisfied your affairs are in order. The costs involved are minimal.

If you do not have a solicitor, contact the Public Trustee, which can assist with making a will at no cost.

There are two ways that you can include QCC in your will; you can make a will if you do not already have one, or you can make an attachment to your will called a codicil.

A codicil is the easiest way to make a bequest if you already have a will and the codicil does not change major parts of the will. If you choose to rewrite your will at a later stage, the bequest can then be fully incorporated into the will. We suggest that you see your solicitor before deciding which of these options will suit you.
