Leave a region worth living in

A bequest in your Will to the GCBR is a gift of hope for the future. A gift that will help us preserve and sustain a region where people live in harmony with our environment for years to come. It is your unique contribution to looking after our Biosphere Reserve so that those you love most can continue to have their breath taken away by its beauty. Remembering the GCBR with a bequest in your Will is the perfect way to let your care and compassion for people and nature continue in years to come.

Charitable bequests are an easy and effective way to leave a lasting legacy etched in the minds and hearts of others.

There are several ways to provide for charitable bequests in your Will and this will largely depend on your personal choice and preference. Your bequest to GCBR can include cash or securities, life insurance policies, annuities, real estate, collectibles, property. The exact nature of the bequest is entirely up to you as long as the conditions attached to the bequest do not become a burden to the GCBR over time. Any gift, no matter how large or small, makes a lasting difference, and if you like, you can indicate what you prefer your gift to be used for – for example an initiative that matters most to you.

By including charitable gifts in your estate planning, you may reduce or eliminate significant taxes payable upon your death. Your bequest to the GCBR will qualify as a deduction for estate duty purposes because we are a registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO).

Your bequest should be made to:

The Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve NPC, registration number 2011/008876/08.
PBO number: 930059846
