Give in memory

Bequests are for everyday people 

It's a common misconception that only wealthy people leave money to charity when they die.  Bequests in wills are not just for the rich and famous.  The reality is that most bequests are made by ordinary, hardworking people who want to make a positive difference to their community after they've gone. 

For a variety of reasons, we're often not able to give as generously during our lives as we might like.  

Leaving a gift to New Zealand Gynaecological Cancer Foundation in your will is a great way to support the vital work of the Foundation to continue its important work for years to come. 

Charities pay a vital role in filling the gaps that governments and society have overlooked and they depend on the support of others. 

By leaving a percentage of your estate, a sum of money or other assets to New Zealand Gynaecological Cancer Foundation in your will, you will be positively affecting the lives of many New Zealand women, including your own families and friends. 

A gift, regardless of the size, will be gratefully received. 

If you don't already have a will, we respectfully advise you to contact your solicitor or trustee company about making a willmake an appointment or get guidance on how to do this online.  If you already have a will, you can ask your solicitor or trustee company to have a codicil (or an addition or amendment) to your will drawn up. 

There are four main types of gifts you can choose to leave: 

  • Residual - the remainder of your estate after considering your loved ones. 
  • Percentage or fractional - a gift expressed as a percentage or fraction of your estate.
  • Pecuniary or specific - a specified gift which can be money, property or stocks and shares.
  • Whole estate - this comprises your entire estate and is usually left by those without beneficiaries or those wanting to achieve something very significant.

Talk to your solicitor or trustee company about the type of gift that will best suit you and your estate.
