Leave A Bequest

You have the power to help protect the future of our oceans and marine wildlife. By leaving a gift to Sea Shepherd Australia in your Will, you will be helping to ensure our oceans are protected for future generations.

Since its inception, Sea Shepherd has been committed to defending our oceans and creating awareness for the delicate state of our planet. Through campaigning and outreach, we have helped to educate people all over the world about the importance of healthy oceans to our survival.

By leaving a gift to Sea Shepherd Australia in your Will, you can ensure that our work will continue to grow. Your gift will honour your memory, reflecting the passion you have for our oceans and your desire to protect it for future generations. 

How to leave a gift to Sea Shepherd Australia

When considering Sea Shepherd Australia in your Will, it’s important to reflect your personal choices but not cause yourself any pressure or worry. All gifts are important to us. Your bequest to Sea Shepherd Australia will be received as an indication of your passion and commitment for the oceans.

The process is easy. You can include a bequest when making your Will, or add one to your existing Will. You should seek legal advice to ensure your choices are properly reflected either way.

Percentage or portion

The same way your estate can be shared between your loved ones, it can be shared with organisations. Your gift to Sea Shepherd Australia can be a percentage or proportion of your entire estate. You don’t need to specify the exact amount - in case you’re unsure of the value of your estate in the future - only a percentage or portion.

Property

You can bequest an asset to Sea Shepherd Australia and you can include us as a beneficiary in your Life Insurance Policy. 

Cash gift

If you are confident of the value of your future estate, you may decide to nominate a specific cash value in your Will, to gift to Sea Shepherd Australia.
