Bequests

One very practical way of helping Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria is by considering leaving a gift in your will. 

Your gift can be made directly to Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, or you can ask us to secure it in the Royal Botanic Gardens Foundation Victoria. The Foundation is a registered not-for-profit established for the purpose of providing long-term, reliable financial support for the Gardens.

Your bequest would be invested and managed by the Foundation as part of its endowment fund, the earnings from which are used to support Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria by providing a sustainable income stream that assists the Gardens to survive and prosper into the future.

If you make the generous decision to leave a gift in your will, you will be helping to secure the botanical, horticultural and scientific future of Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria – and your foresight will be appreciated by generations of visitors to our remarkable Gardens at Melbourne and Cranbourne.
