By leaving a bequest to Save the Children you help make a permanent difference to the lives of children in New Zealand and around the world.
Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children, working in more than 120 countries to deliver real and lasting change.
Save the Children is not-for-profit, non-government, and non-sectarian. Our vision is a world in which every child has the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
Bequests provide vital support for our work and allow us to plan for future programmes.
How to leave a bequest to Save the Children
Leaving your bequest for the general purposes of Save the Children allows your gift to be used wherever it is most needed. There are several ways to make a gift in your will. Here are two examples of wording you may use:
A percentage of your estate.
“I give to Save the Children New Zealand, a registered charitable trust, a _________ % share of the residue of my estate for its general purposes. A receipt given on behalf of SCNZ will be a complete discharge to my trustees for the bequest.”
A specific gift – a sum of money, real estate, shares, bonds or another gift you wish to nominate.
“I give to Save the Children New Zealand, a registered charitable trust, the sum of $__________ or __________ for its general purposes. A receipt given on behalf of SCNZ will be a complete discharge to my trustees for the bequest.”
These are examples only. Your solicitor or the Public Trust will be able to provide you with specific information when drawing up your will.
