Nelson Tasman Hospice, as a not-for-profit organisation, relies on the generous support of our community through donations and bequests.
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.
Ensuring you have a valid Will ensures your wishes are carried out the way you would like. It also means your estate can be administered quickly and economically, making the process easier for your family and beneficiaries. We recommend seeking advice from a trustee or solicitor who will ensure your wishes are clearly and legally stated.
If you already have a Will or trust and have decided you want to make a gift to a new beneficiary, such as Nelson Tasman Hospice, changing you Will or Memorandum of Wishes is simple – you just need to add a codicil. Your solicitor can do this for you.
There are a number of ways you could make a gift that makes a significant positive impact on hospice and the services we offer:
- Residuary – a gift of the remainder of your estate after provision 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
Our Fundraising and Marketing Manager would be happy to talk through your plans or wishes but please seek independent, qualified advice before making a final decision.
