Bequests - Brave Foundation


Leaving a bequest to Brave Foundation is a powerful way to help support vulnerable young parents in our community.

If you chose to remember Brave Foundation in your Will, we want to say a heartfelt thank you!

How to leave a gift in your Will

There are a number of ways to support our work through your Will. You can choose to:

  • nominate a specified percentage of your estate
  • gift a specific dollar amount
  • allocate a residue or a portion of the residue
  • leave a specific asset such as superannuation, bank accounts or shares.

We suggest you speak to your solicitor to make sure that your wishes can be carried out in the way you would like. If you already have a Will and would now like to include a gift to Brave Foundation, speak to your solicitor to make a ‘codicil’.

You will require the following information:

Legal name: Brave Foundation
ABN: 24 138 282 210.
Brave Foundation is a charitable institution and is endorsed as a deductible gift recipient.

Anne Tomlinson Walsh


Anne Tomlinson Walsh was one of 12 children, had no children of her own that we know, and had no family or loved ones close to her at the time of her death.

During her life, Anne had a passion for education of young women, particularly those that were vulnerable to higher risks, including teenage pregnancy. In 2011, when Anne was in palliative care, she requested that her lawyer research national charities that assist those facing teenage pregnancy in order to receive their education. Her lawyer came back with some opportunities, including Brave Foundation’s details and a copy of Brave Little Bear, the book by Brave’s Founder Bernadette Black AM,.

Bernadette received a phone call from Anne’s lawyer late in 2013 to inform her that Anne had passed away 18 months earlier and left a portion of her estate to Brave Foundation.


It is due to this generous gift that Brave Foundation’s national vision has been realised. And it is due to this generous gift that 24,000 teenagers, their families, friends and communities will receive support and assistance that they have never had before. This amazing gift will literally be a gift for generations of families in Australia and beyond.
