Climate Council Legacy Circle

I am leaving a legacy to the Climate Council; a trustworthy organisation that is well led and has positive science-based initiatives. Together we aim to leave Australia in as good a shape as possible, for the next generation.” – Joanne

“I have left a bequest to the Climate Council. When I am no longer able to contribute in person, I want to make sure that such a vital cause remains supported.” – Robin

“Years ago when I made my first Will, I knew I wanted to do something that would make a difference beyond my lifetime. I’ve long advocated for real action on climate change to ensure a habitable planet for future generations & supporting the Climate Council with a bequest became a way to ensure that continued even after I’m gone.”Timmee

The difference your gift can make

You are a vital part of our story. The Climate Council was founded in 2013 by tens of thousands of Australians like you to create a new, independent and community-funded organisation in response to the abolition of the Australian Climate Commission.

We share a vision for a bright and healthy future for Australia, powered by clean energy. We believe every person and every generation has the right to clean air, fresh water and a safe and liveable climate.

But our work together has only just begun. The challenge of climate change, and of realising the opportunities for a healthier, fairer and sustainable future will require resources, focus, passion, and resolve far into the future.

Even after we’ve reduced our emissions to zero, we must begin the task of reversing the damage that’s been done. Restoring ecosystems and drawing carbon back down from the atmosphere will again be vital work that takes decades and centuries. 

A gift is your Will is vital to achieving this work. Large or small, your far-sighted support will power the smartest opportunities to make a difference on climate change into the future. Leaving a legacy of this kind is a way to ensure your values and voice in safeguarding our climate, live on.
