Leave a gift in your will
Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most important ways you can help us ensure that Butterfly Foundation will be here to support future generations.
After you have taken care of those closest to you, we would be honoured to receive any gift, large or small, to allow us to continue our mission and support those affected by eating disorders and body image issues.
The life you’ve lived can create a legend that lasts forever when you leave a Gift in your Will. We’re proud to be part of Include a Charity Week (6 to 12 September), a campaign that raises the profile of charitable Gifts in Wills. This is one of the most important ways you can help us ensure that Butterfly will be here to support generations to come.

How to leave a gift
When you make a Will or update your existing one, it is advisable that you obtain independent legal advice to ensure you achieve all you desire for your family and others close to you.
Should you decide that leaving a gift to Butterfly Foundation is something you wish to do, we suggest you use the following wording in your Will:
“I give, devise and bequeath to Butterfly Foundation (ABN 42 102 193 582)
a) The residue (or ______ % of the residue) of my estate OR
b) _______ % of my estate OR
c) A sum of $ _______”
to be used for the fulfilment of Butterfly’s charitable purposes through its awareness, research, education and advocacy programs, and treatment and support services, free of all death and estate duties. I declare that the receipt of such gift by an authorised officer of the Butterfly Foundation shall constitute a full and sufficient discharge of my Executor’s duties.
You are not required to let us know if you have included Butterfly Foundation in your Will, however we welcome the opportunity to thank you in person to acknowledge your generous contribution during your lifetime.
Our Butterfly Wings are a group of generous and like-minded individuals who have decided to leave a gift in their Will to our organisation. As a special member of this group, you will receive invitations to events and activities to see how your support will be able to change the future of those experiencing eating disorders and negative body image.
“For many years we lived with an eating disorder in our family and we struggled trying to find the right treatment. At the time, there was no organisation like Butterfly; no one to call. I have left a gift to Butterfly in my Will to ensure that others don’t struggle as we did.” – Tony Gill, Butterfly Board
“To ensure that Butterfly will remain at its post to support future generations, I have left a gift in my Will to support the wonderful work of this organisation. I encourage you to do the same”
– Hon. Peter Vickery QC
