Your Legacy

Your legacy can live on through a gift from your Will.

Your legacy will create a more just world that promotes fundamental human rights, respect and dignity for all. As an ultimate gift of compassion, you can help our sisters and brothers who are fleeing war and persecution.

Thank you so much for your interest in leaving a bequest to JRS Australia. By taking this opportunity to transform your faith into action, your legacy will support children, women and men in desperate need and facing one of the most punitive systems in the world for forcibly displaced people. It’s thanks to generous gifts from our friends and supporters that JRS have been accompanying, serving and advocating for the rights of refugees, people seeking asylum and other forcibly displaced people for the last 40 years. No matter how much you set aside, you’ll be helping to make Australia a better place for generations to come.

JRS Australia is committed to look after your gift to us with sensitivity and care. We will show your family and loved ones integrity and honesty administering your gift, and handle all Gifts in Wills with the utmost respect and gratitude. You can be assured that your gift will be invested efficiently and cost-effectively so it has the most impact. We hope that thought makes you and those who love you feel very proud.
