Your bequest will make a difference
We need your support. By supporting the Haemophilia Foundation of New Zealand through your bequest you will help to ensure our services continue to make a difference in the lives of people with bleeding disorders. You can be assured that you will be continuing to contribute to the well-being of the community well beyond your lifetime and that your financial contribution will be well managed. By leaving a bequest you are not impacting on your current financial situation - but making a real difference to the future.
How do I make a Will?
Your Will is a unique and clear record of your wishes. No matter what your financial situation, making a legal Will enables you to provide for the needs of family who depend on you, as well as the charities you choose to support. If you have not yet made a Will, the good news is that this is usually a very simple, inexpensive process.
A Will is a Legal Document, it is important to seek the right advice and wording of a Will. Your lawyer, the Public Trust Office or a Trustee Company, will be able to explain to you the various ways in which this can be done.
If you already have a Will and wish to change this, you can include a Codicil (amendment or addition) to incorporate your bequest to the Haemophilia Foundation of New Zealand Inc.
Your Will is a living document that continues beyond your lifetime. Advisors recommend that you review your Will every 5 years or so in case your circumstances and intentions change.
Your review is an ideal time to add an amendment to your Will to give a wonderful gift of support to people with bleeding disorders.
If you choose to leave a gift to HFNZ, some suggested wording for your Will might be:
“I give to the Haemophilia Foundation of New Zealand Inc. the sum of $...................................or (% of estate, or the residue of my estate, or a description of assets or property) for the general purposes, for which the receipt of the Chief Executive or other proper officer, shall be full and sufficient discharge to my trustees.”
HFNZ extends its heartfelt thanks to those who decide to contribute to future generations through a gift in their Will. We ensure your money will be used to benefit and support people affected by bleeding disorders in New Zealand.
We would be very grateful if you would let us know that you had left a bequest to HFNZ. This way we can thank you in advance for your generosity.
Please be assured that your bequest will be kept strictly confidential, unless you request otherwise.
Our Member Representative Groups (MRGs) are run by members for members. We have six MRGs, four regional (Northern, Midland, Central and Southern), plus our Māori group, Piritoto, and the National Youth Commitee. Each has its own committee of volunteer members that organise social events that provide the much needed personal connections and networks so valued by people with rare bleeding disorders and their families.
The MRG committees could always use more people to help. If you are a member and would like to be more involved, please contact us via the form below and we will put you in touch with the right people in your area.
