Your gift creates a way forward for people in need

“There’s always a way forward.” That’s the promise you make to future generations when you include Mission Australia in your Will.

As one of Australia’s oldest charities, Mission Australia has long been part of the fabric of the community – and perhaps even part of your life.

We have always tried to be there for anyone who stumbles or falls. We offer help, without judgement. We support people until they can stand for themselves and are strong enough to step into a better life.

You can make sure this life-changing work continues, so that there’s always a way forward for those in need.

With a gift in your Will to Mission Australia, you’ll help create a ‘safety net’ of compassion and practical help in the community, long into the future. Whether it’s short-term difficulty, a lifelong struggle, or a gap in a system, your gift will be there to help find a way forward.

Changing the future for people in need

After the loss of his mother and his partner only months apart, James spent four to five years falling in and out of homelessness.

“When I first arrived at Mission Australia I felt very worthless. I didn’t feel like I could fit into the world anymore,” says James. “I look back on myself and I could never picture myself where I am right now...”

The turning point in his life was a referral to the Mission Australia Centre in Sydney. Our team helped James complete a university course and transition to long-term accommodation. Like anyone, James had his share of ups and downs, but thanks to our generous supporters, James has the support in place to bounce back and step towards independence. With a gift in your Will, you’re helping make a life-changing impact on people like James.

After working as a nurse for over 40 years, Lois wanted to continue caring for people in need by leaving a gift in her Will.

“I was blessed to have such a rewarding job, and I still felt a responsibility to help where I could,” says Lois. “I want to leave the world a kinder place. To me, it’s just the right thing to do.” 

Lois decided to leave a gift in her Will to make sure vulnerable people can find support and care long after she’s gone.  "I don’t have much but whatever’s left, it all adds up with what other people give and it can make a big difference.
