Leaving a Bequest to the Te Wahi Ora Charitable Trust
A gift in your Will – no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated. It will help Te Wahi Ora continue to provide facilities and services for women, now and for future generations.
By including a bequest in your Will, you have the option of leaving a specific amount, an item or a percentage of your estate to the Te Wahi Ora Charitable Trust.
A bequest is an easy way to support the work of Te Wahi Ora. You may chose to leave your bequest freely, ie ‘no strings attached’, so that the Te Wahi Ora Charitable Trust can apply the funds in the areas where they are most needed, or you can specify where you would like the funds to be spent.
A Will is an important legal document so it should be prepared by a legal professional. It is important to discuss options and specific wording with your legal advisor to make sure your Will reflects your wishes clearly, giving specific guidance on how you want your assets and personal belongings distributed when you die.
Wording for a bequest
Here’s an indication of the words that can be used to leave a bequest to the Te Wahi Ora Charitable Trust:
“I give and bequeath the sum of $_____(or) _____ % of my estate, (or) residue of my estate, (or) property or assets as follows…
…free of all charges, to the Te Wahi Ora Charitable Trust. The official receipt of the Manager or other authorised officer of the Trustee is an absolute discharge to my executors.”
Thank you for considering this way of supporting women, and thereby families and society generally, through a bequest to the Te Wahi Ora Charitable Trust.
