Gifts left in wills form the basis of many charities in Australia. Without these gifts a number of charities would struggle to survive. But while Australia and New Zealand are reported to be the most generous* countries in the world, only 7.5%* of Australians aged 60 and over actually choose to include a gift to a charity in their will, although that is beginning to change.
By helping people understand that they can leave a gift to charity and still consider their loved ones, Include A Charity hopes to make leaving gifts to charities a real option for all Australians.
