Thank you for considering leaving a bequest to Greenfleet, your commitment to the environment and a sustainable future will live on through your generous gift.

Since 1997, Greenfleet has been making a difference for the community and the environment throughout Australia.  We have been educating people and organisations to adopt a low-carbon lifestyle and replanted biodiverse forests on their behalf to offset their remaining carbon emissions.

By replanting over 8.7 million native trees... and counting, Greenfleet, along with its generous donors and supporters, is helping to restore habitat for native wildlife, reduce salinity, prevent soil erosion, support biodiversity and tackle climate change.

Bequests and donations help Greenfleet plant more native forests in Australia, and the ongoing benefits are numerous. It’s a gift for current generations and the ones to come. Bequests are a unique way to give something back to Australia’s precious environment, creating a living legacy that will grow and flourish over the course of time.

If you do leave a bequest to Greenfleet, we thank you sincerely for your decision. Please be assured that your special gift will be used wisely to further our mission: removing carbon by restoring forests in Australia.

We strongly encourage you to use the services of a Solicitor when you wish to make or revise your Will. Using a Solicitor will ensure that your wishes are recorded accurately in a proper manner, thus giving you peace of mind that your estate will be distributed in accord with your wishes.
