A legacy of hope for the future
Leaving a gift in your will is an incredibly generous gesture and a special way you can leave a valuable legacy and keep giving hope for future generations of young people and children.
A gift in your will – no matter how big or small – ensures that Concern Australia can continue to carry out the legacy of our Founder, Rev Dr. John Smith, to create hope and care for young people and children who are disadvantaged, vulnerable and at risk of falling through the cracks because no one else wants to help them.
At Concern Australia we have been looking at ways that we can provide opportunities for our faithful supporters and friends to leave a lasting legacy by supporting our work in their will.
“When the pioneer is gone, those who follow will do more and do it in less time than the pioneer.”
~ Rev. Dr John Smith
The pioneering work that Rev. Dr John Smith started in the late 1960s and early 1970s informs the work that we do today that is needed more than ever. We continue to work with some of the most vulnerable, disadvantaged and at risk children and young people in our communities through our education, housing and homelessness and youth justice programs.
A gift in your will - no matter how big or small - allows us to continue to deliver these life-changing programs for young people and children who are disadvantaged or disengaged with life and community, including those who are struggling with challenging circumstances that involve abuse, homelessness, domestic or family violence, poverty, poor education and lack of employment opportunities.
Your gift will continue to honour your memory, and ensure that the beliefs and values that you hold so strongly, as we do, will be instilled in future generations.
Your legacy offers a future that is filled with hope and creates opportunities for young people to enjoy full and meaningful lives to enable them to achieve their full potential.
