Leave a Legacy

Have you considered leaving a financial legacy to the Caroline Chisholm Library? Leaving a bequest in your will is a powerful way to secure the Library’s long-term future.

Many cultural organisations in Melbourne, like the Athanaeum Club and the Institute for Public Affairs, have benefitted from the generosity of members who have left legacies. These legacies have secured the long-term future of such organisations, especially when they have allowed them to purchase their own premises.

Ultimately, we too would like to purchase our own premises in the Melbourne CBD. This will free up rent money that we can use to develop the Library collection and to expand our range of cultural activities.

Leaving a legacy is simple. All you need to do is make “The Caroline Chisholm Library Inc” a beneficiary of your will. We recommend that you leave a percentage of your estate to the Library, to minimise the impact of inflation. Any amount, large or small, will help to secure the Library's long-term future.
