Bequests: Giving the Gift of Literacy

Do you remember dressing up as a favourite character for Book Week parades in Primary School? How about curling up at bedtime with a book and being transported to a world of fantastical creatures or larger-than-life characters? Remember those precious moments spent sharing the joy of a beautiful picture book with your children or grandchildren?

If books have had a positive impact on your childhood or the lives of your children and grandchildren and you would like to support the CBCA to continue the work of nurturing a literate, educated and creative society, please consider making a bequest.

Here are just some of the ways your bequest would make a difference: 

  • Promote quality literature to young Australians through the Book of The Year Awards and CBCA Children's Book Week activities.
  • Support and encourage Australian children’s writers and illustrators through the Book of the Year Awards.
  • Support the promotion of literature and literacy nationally through CBCA's events program.
  • Promote greater equity of access to reading through community projects.

For more information on how to leave a gift to the CBCA in your will, after remembering your family and friends, please refer to our website.

Or, if you would like to have a confidential discussion with someone about leaving a bequest, please contact us on 07 3842 9120 or 1300 365 922.

Thank you so much for considering including CBCA in your will. Please be assured that it will make a significant difference.
