Leave a gift in your will
Leaving a gift, or a bequest in your will is a way to provide for others after you have gone.
Once you've made sure your family and friends are looked after, you could leave something to support disabled people in New Zealand.
There are three types of bequests for you to consider. Your bequest can be:
- A percentage of your estate
- A set dollar amount
- The 'residue' or the remainder of your estate after family and loved ones are looked after
How to leave a bequest
If your will is already written you can add a codicil. This is a simple process that involves a quick trip to a lawyer. You can download a codicil (DOC 24 kB) that contains all the CCS Disability Action details you will need.
Or, if you are in the process of writing a will, you can include these words:
I give and bequeath to CCS Disability Action Inc. National Office (or CCS Disability Action Inc. and the branch/regional name) for the general purposes of the Society, a _________ share of my Estate (or the sum of $_______) and declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other authorised officer of the Society shall be good and sufficient discharge for my Trustee(s).
We would love to know if you decide to leave a gift in your will to us. That way, we can keep you informed about the work we are doing.
