Leave something that will live on after you
Leave a gift in your will to charity
Everyone has causes that they care about; a charity involving children, youth, the elderly, animals, the environment, community services, wellbeing or health.
We’re often not able to give as generously during our lives as we might like to. Leaving a gift in your Will is a great way to support the vital work of charities we’ve always wanted to help but were previously unable to, or to increase the level of giving to a charity you’ve supported all your life.
Gifts in wills are for every day people
It's a common misconception that only wealthy people leave money to charity when they die. Gifts in wills, or bequests, are not just made by the rich and famous. The reality is that most bequests are made by ordinary, hardworking people who want to make a positive difference in their community and to other people's lives.
Keep on supporting
The simple fact is that without the generosity of these normal, every day New Zealanders, many of the charities we care about and support wouldn't exist.
Bequests form the financial basis of many major New Zealand charities and are absolutely essential for ensuring the good work they do continues into the future.
The good news is that including a charity in your will is just as easy as providing for your loved ones. And it can be as much, or as little, as you want.
Be the difference
Whoever you are, whatever your situation, you can help make a difference and help create a better world by including a gift to a charity in your will.
It's easy to leave a gift in your will, and a gift can be as big or as little as you wish, it just needs to be meaningful to you.
