Whether you’re updating your will or creating one for the first time, we’re here to help. Including a gift in your will is simple to do, doesn’t impact on your day-to-day living and gives satisfaction knowing that your generosity lives on.

There are three main ways of including a gift in your will. Your legal advisor will clarify for you what best suits your wishes and circumstances:
  • Residual – the remainder of your estate after taking care of your loved ones
  • Percentage – a percentage of the value of your estate
  • Pecuniary or specific - a specific sum of money, property or items.

Suggested wording:
“I give to World Vision New Zealand (CC25984)   …..…% of my estate (or the residue of my estate, the sum of $.......... or a description of the property or asset given) for its general purposes and declare that the receipt of the Chairman or other authorised officer shall be full and sufficient discharge for my Trustees. “

When preparing your will, we advise seeking qualified legal advice including a solicitor, the Public Trust Office or a trustee company such as Perpetual Guardian. The New Zealand Law Society and your local Citizen's Advice Bureau can help you find a solicitor if you don't already have one.

As it may be many years before your gift becomes a reality, we encourage you not to be too specific in your will as World Vision New Zealand priorities and projects change over time. We ask you to trust our experienced leadership team to use the gift where it is most needed.
