Make a Bequest

Making a bequest to Nature Foundation can help ensure that future generations will be able to experience the beauty of South Australia’s natural environment.

A bequest to Nature Foundation can help us conserve South Australian landscapes, flora and fauna for future generations

For 40 years, our strong track record of protecting nature in South Australia is a result of good governance and our commitment to nature science research, which directly underpins all our work for nature conservation.

From Witchelina Nature Reserve in the arid lands, south to the critical ecological communities of the Fleurieu swamplands, and environmental watering along the River Murray, your legacy will help our most vulnerable and endangered native flora and fauna species to survive.

A gift in your will of any size is a simple and powerful way to provide ongoing support to a cause close to your heart.

Gift of Land

One of Nature Foundation’s strategic goals is to expand the area of high conservation value landscape protected. We welcome gifts of land to help achieve this. More information on making a gift of land is available in the Land Conservation Information Sheet.

If you are interested in making a gift of land please complete the Land Enquiry Form within the Land Conservation Information Sheet and return it to us.


I was drawn to the practicality of what Nature Foundation does - buying and conserving land is such an effective and action-based way to make a lasting difference.

To be able to protect unique species and restore land as Nature Foundation does, is nothing short of a miracle.

Vision for Nature

Vision for Nature is a way for us to recognise those who include Nature Foundation in their Will.

When you confirm the gift to Nature Foundation in your Will, you will be invited to join Vision for Nature to enjoy the benefits of membership of this select group. Vision for Nature brings together people with a deep concern for, and commitment to, our natural environment thriving well beyond our own lifetimes.

The Society offers a wide range of social, cultural and nature conservation events, with opportunities to meet like-minded people and engage with a dynamic community of staff, board members, researchers and donors. Your membership is a way to thank you for your generous support and enables us to engage with you on a personal level about Nature Foundation’s conservation work in South Australia during your lifetime. 


More information on making a bequest or leaving a gift in your will is available in our Bequest Brochure.

For information on the types of bequests you can make and how to make them see our Bequest Legal Guide.
