What’s the legacy you hope to leave?

Writing a Will provides an opportunity to reflect on what matters most in life.

Bible Society Australia has quite the legacy. We got our start way back in 1817 – a month before Westpac opened its doors.

This makes us the longest continuously operating organisation in Australia’s history.

Back then, people understood that God was more important than money. And that’s still true today.


Our supporters still understand the meaning of legacy

Annie Selman remembers supporting Bible Society as a 3-year-old, putting pennies into the bucket at Sunday School. It’s a legacy that’s stayed with her – and one she will leave in her Will.

It’s also a legacy she shares with her late husband, Rex. Annie’s decision to leave a gift to Bible Society Australia stems from their shared love.

“Rex and I were always united in our love for Bible Society,” Annie reflects. “The gift I’m leaving in my Will is not just my legacy – it’s also his.”

“When I think about all the people who cannot access Scripture, I love that my widow’s mite can help.”

Consider your legacy when you create your Will

Many Bible Society Australia supporters use the opportunity of making or updating their Will to consider the legacy they want to leave.

Writing your Will is a chance to consider what really matters.

It gives you a moment of pause to think about the people you care about and how you want to be remembered.

Who are the people you hope to bless after you’re gone? Both those you know, and those you’ll never get to meet in this life?

A Will is a chance to share the life-affirming restoration we see in Scripture with others. Both our own loved ones and the rest of the world.
