A charitable bequest is a gift in a will. They are made by Kiwis across the full social spectrum in order to support causes and people. We all have causes we care about which may include:
a learning institution
the well-being of animals
a charity involving children
During our lives it can be challenging to financially support the causes and people we care about. A charitable bequest allows us to support specific causes after we've gone. Charitable bequests are an important aspect in successfully operating cause-related organisations.
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.
