Many of our supporters have chosen to leave a gift to the TLC in their will. As one of the most powerful and simple ways to protect the special places you value today, forever - you can too.


By leaving a gift to the Tasmanian Land Conservancy in your will you will help to ensure that nature in Tasmania lasts forever.

People connect to nature in so many ways. Leaving a gift in your will is something simple and powerful you can do to make sure the wild places you love today, are protected for the future.


Gifts in Wills play a crucial role in ensuring the TLC continues our important conservation work into the future. Unless specified in your will, a gift to the TLC will be directed towards our conservation programs, going to the most vital and relevant areas of our work at the time. For example, it may be that your gift is directed to the acquisition of a conservation property or held in the TLC Foundation.

You can be confident that your gift will make an enduring difference.

In many cases, the best way to support the TLC is through a monetary gift from your estate. This may be a specific sum of money, but keep in mind loss of value over time. Consider a gift of all or a specific portion of the residue of your estate. This can give the TLC funds remaining after you have made appropriate provisions for family and loved ones and estate expenses.

We encourage you to not restrict the use of your gift as certain programs and initiatives today may not be as vital or relevant when your gift is eventually received.

If you are considering leaving your own property to the TLC, please contact us to discuss the suitability and practicality of such a gift.

We encourage you to reach out to us and then seek advice from a solicitor when drafting your will, because the wording you use is very important.

If you have decided to leave the TLC a gift in your will, please let us know.

Confirming your gift to the TLC gives us a chance to personally thank you for your generosity and commitment and keep you updated about our work. We can then invite you to join the TLC’s community of Natural Guardians, who receive invitations to special events and hosted trips to our magnificent reserves.
