Make a bequest

Give a precious gift to our feminist movement  

*a bequest is a legal gift of personal property, such as money or personal items of value, that are given by will after a person has passed away. 

The work we do at the Working Women’s Centre helps vulnerable women every day. We are a not-for-profit organisation, a charity and a service that helps women in need of support. Most importantly, our centre has worked for over 40 years to make workplaces fairer for women.   

Making a bequest allows you to make a tangible and lasting gift to a cause you believe in. By leaving a gift to the Working Women’s Centre in your Will, you can help us to continue our work towards a future where women are free of gender-based violence, inequality and discrimination. You will help women of all ages to lead systemic change for a better world. Gifts to the Working Women’s Centre help us to operate and continue our important work sustainably in times of crisis.  

Movements for workers’ rights and women’s liberation have a rich history of standing up for what’s right. Our work spans many generations. Making a bequest to Working Women’s Centre SA is a powerful way to express your feminist values in your Will, and to pass on your vision for a better world to others.
