Bequests

Include a bequest in your Will

A bequest is a very real way to leave a legacy and make a positive impact.

By including a bequest to Bicycle NSW Environmental Trust in your Will, you can help to create a better and safer environment for cycling, and provide a positive environmental impact for generations to come.

The Bicycle NSW Environmental Trust was established in 2003 to promote bicycle riding as an environmentally beneficial means of transport. The Trust helps Bicycle NSW continue its valuable work of:

  • advocating for better and safer cycling infrastructure,
  • building our cycling community and membership, and
  • getting more people riding bikes through its program of events,

Why we need your support

Bicycle NSW is a not for profit, non-government member organisation.

Bequests allow Bicycle NSW to have a greater influence in creating a positive impact for the environment by encouraging more people to ride through the realisation of a better and safer environment for cyclists. It also helps us to have a greater influence on government policies and budget allocation for cycling infrastructure.

You don’t have to tell us if you have chosen to include us in your will. However we’d like the opportunity to thank you and keep you updated about our future plans.

For more information about how your bequest can become your legacy in creating a better environment for cycling or to advise us of you bequest – please contact Bicycle NSW on 02 9704 0800 or at info@bicyclensw.org.au.
