A gift to nature is one of the most powerful legacies we can leave, as it is something that lasts well beyond our lifetimes.

By leaving the TLC a gift in your will, you are making a powerful and loving pledge for the preservation of Tasmania’s natural places for years to come.

A bequest is the ultimate commitment to ensuring our long-term vision for Tasmania to be a global leader in nature conservation and we are so grateful to those people who have had the generosity and foresight to include the TLC in their will.

All bequests to the TLC (unless otherwise specified) are held by the TLC Foundation and invested. Interest earned from the investment is used to directly fund the ongoing management of all TLC permanent reserves. No fundraising or administrative costs are taken from the TLC bequests. By advising the TLC of your bequest or your intention to leave a gift to the TLC, you will assist in our long-term planning.

Elizabeth Ann James’ Bequest

Elizabeth was passionately committed to her Tasmanian heritage and the environment and wished that a percentage of her estate be bequeathed for conservation. Elizabeth’s executors felt that a gift to the TLC would fulfill Elizabeth’s charitable intentions so the Elizabeth Ann James Memorial Fund has been established to assist with the ongoing management of the TLC’s permanent reserves, including the magnificent Vale of Belvoir Ramsar-listed wetland at Long Point.

Tom Hay’s Bequest

Tom Hay will be remembered by many as a beautiful and insightful young man with a passion for the natural environment and social justice. In Tom’s will he bequeathed the bulk of his estate to the TLC - a most humbling and moving gesture. “Tom was deeply committed to his island and its natural values and left his estate to the TLC to help sustain the TLC perpetually.” Pete Hay
