Gifts in Wills
A lasting legacy for future generations of people and animals
Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most significant ways to support Animal-Free Science Advocacy in our ongoing campaigns to end animal experimentation in Australia, whilst ensuring your values and a cause you are passionate about live on.
As a charity with no Government support, our work depends solely on donations and gifts in Wills in order to be able to oppose animal experimentation and to promote humane and scientifically valid non-animal methods. It is only due to recent sizeable gifts that we have been able to expand our team and we are so grateful for the kind and generous acts which enabled this.
Preparing your Will is an extremely personal matter. It allows you to provide for your family and friends, and an organisation or cause that is close to your heart.
A gift can also be a fitting tribute in memory of a loved pet/companion animal, especially as many dogs, cats, and rabbits are used in experiments each year.
After providing for your loved ones, if you would like to help us continue our valuable work, please also consider a gift to Animal-Free Science Advocacy.

How to include Animal-Free Science Advocacy in your will
After providing for your loved ones, if you would like to leave a gift to Animal-Free Science Advocacy we recommend you consider using the following suggested wording after discussion with your solicitor. To find a solicitor in your area, you can search the Include a Charity solicitor database.
“I give, free of all duties and taxes, ……% of the residue of my estate / the sum of …… dollars to Animal-Free Science Advocacy Inc (ABN 17 208 630 818), after the payment of all my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, for the general purposes of Animal-Free Science Advocacy. An authorised receipt from Animal-Free Science Advocacy will be a sufficient discharge for the executor(s) or trustee.”

Help us bring an end to animal experimentation and create a better world for animals and humans
Thank you for considering the plight of animals in laboratories in your Will.
Animal-Free Science Advocacy gratefully receives donations in lieu of flowers at funerals. Many friends and family members collect donations to direct to medical research, motivated by the desire to find a cure for the condition that has taken the life of a loved one. To respect the values of your loved one and support the vital work of health charities, you may wish to consult the Humane Charities List to ensure that any donations do not fund animal experimentation.
