A gift in your will can leave a profound and lasting impact on the lives of people seeking asylum in the community.
At the heart of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) are a community of volunteers, staff and supporters who as a movement, have enabled the organisation to become the largest independent human rights organisation for people seeking asylum in Australia. We are led and owned by our community and therefore rely on your donations to sustain our work and ensure 3,000 people each year receive the support they need to rebuild their lives.
A gift in your will, large or small, plays a vital role in ensuring the ASRC can continue to protect, support and empower people seeking asylum so they can advance their own futures. Importantly, gifts in wills help the Centre build capacity to advocate for people seeking asylum and drive change. By including the ASRC in your will, you can create a lasting legacy to uphold human rights for people seeking asylum and a commitment to fostering a more compassionate Australia.

“I believe that refugees and migrants contribute mightily to our social and economic fabric in Australia. I am the daughter of a refugee, and have benefited from the past welcome that Australia gave to people needing a new life. My mother and my grandmother always maintained that Australia was a generous country and that as refugees they were lucky in their choice. I grew up with a sense that Australia was a fair, open-minded and welcoming country. The Government has turned its back on it material and financial responsibilities with mean spirited and cruel policies which leave refugees and asylum seekers without support and the community ignorant of what is happening. However the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre has taken up the slack. It supports asylum seekers directly and also provides a strong advocacy voice to the community and governments. I have been lucky in my life and want to make sure that this valuable work and message of humanity continues.” – Margaret Rasa
