Making a Will is one of the most important decisions you can make in your life. It ensures your wishes are carried out and the values you hold most dear continue to live on through the work of others, such as the amazing work of our Bush Chaplains and Outback Links volunteers.

Many generous people choose to give to Frontier Services through a Gift in their Will. It’s a powerful way to ensure your legacy lives on for years to come, and people in the bush never have to struggle alone.

Rev John Flynn’s legacy. And yours.

Plenty has changed in rural and remote Australia since the beginning of the 20th century, but some things remain the same.

When Rev John Flynn envisioned a “mantle of safety” to enrich and protect our outback communities, he was responding to an overwhelming need he witnessed firsthand.

Where there are people in the bush struggling with hardship and isolation, our network of Bush Chaplains and Outback Links volunteers – through your legacy – will be this mantle of safety.

How Frontier Services is funded

We do not receive direct government funding and rely solely on the funds we raise through our various fundraising appeals and campaigns.

One vital source of funding are bequests or gifts in Wills. Such kind gifts allow us to look into the future and create programs that will continue the work the Rev John Flynn began 110 years ago.

The John Flynn Foundation

We are also funded by The John Flynn Foundation, our endowment fund. Gifts to The John Flynn Foundation helps build a significant reserve which provides a steady and long-term income stream to support our Bush Chaplain program.

Deciding what you wish to leave

Please discuss these options with your family and your solicitor to work out what is best for you. Here are some common examples of bequests.

We would most appreciate a percentage gift or a residual gift.

Pecuniary gift

A fixed sum of money

Percentage gift

Leave a percentage or proportion of your estate to ensure that your loved ones and the causes you care are about are looked after in accordance with your wishes.

Residual gift

The most effective way to leave a bequest and are made up of the remainder of your estate after the Specific Bequests have been distributed. 

Specific gift

Gifts of particular articles such as property, houses, land, cars, furniture, jewellery, shares, paintings etc
