Nelson Tasman Hospice is a charitable trust and relies on the generous support of our community through donations and bequests.
Nelson Tasman Hospice currently receives just over half of its operating costs from Government (through the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board), the shortfall being made up with help from the Hospice Shops, fundraising initiatives, business sponsorships, grants from philanthropic trusts donations and bequests.
What is a bequest?
A bequest is a gift from your estate made through your will. It can be a specified gift of property or savings, or a percentage of your entire estate.
We are sincerely grateful to those caring people who have made, or are planning to make, a bequest to hospice as a part of their Will.
How do I make my will?
Since a will is a legal document, it’s important to seek the right advice and wording. A solicitor, the Public Trust (link) or Perpetual Guardian Trust (link) can help you prepare your will. If you have not yet made a will, this is usually a simple, inexpensive process and the benefits are enormous – both for the recipient charity, and for your own peace of mind knowing that your wishes have been made clear.
There are several types of bequests you can chose from:
- Residuary – a gift of the remainder of your estate after provisions for family and other beneficiaries have been settled
- Percentage – a percentage of the value of your estate
- Pecuniary – a specific sum of money
- Specified Bequest – a particular item such as a vehicle or a house
