A bequest to Age Concern Auckland allows you to leave a lasting legacy and continue to assist those who need it most, long after you’re gone. It is the ultimate act of kindness and caring you can show towards your community.
Age Concern Auckland is a charity and relies on the generosity of our community to raise over 60% of the funding required to deliver our essential services and support. Any bequest left to us, no matter how small or large, has a lasting impact and helps ensure that we can continue supporting some of the most vulnerable people aged over 65 across Auckland. This includes crucial services that mitigate the negative impacts of loneliness, social isolation, elder abuse and neglect.
Leaving a bequest is easy. After taking care of your loved ones, the simplest way to leave a gift in your will to Age Concern Auckland is
to speak with your solicitor. He or she can ensure that your estate is distributed in a way that honours your wishes. If you don’t have a
solicitor or professional Trustee company, the New Zealand Law Society website can provide direction.
Bequests can be made in several ways, depending on your wishes and circumstances
- Residual – a gift from the remainder of your estate, once your loved ones have been provided for and any taxes and charges settled.
- Percentage – a gift of a specified percentage of your estate.
- Specific – a specified amount of money, item of property or stocks and shares.
- Combination – a mixture of any of the above.
