Bequests

A LEGACY FOR YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN

Your deferred gift by way of a bequest is a permanent legacy to the Party and a great way to help to protect the values that you believe in for generations of New Zealanders to come.

Including the National Foundation in your will when making a new will, adding it to your existing one by making a codicil, or varying your family trust to include the Foundation as a beneficiary, will provide invaluable long term support.

Any amount, no matter how small or large, can be nominated and you may wish to discuss with the Foundation Secretary supporting a specific activity, such as supporting greater opportunities for women, or developing promising young leaders via one of our specific purposes sub-trusts.

The process is relatively simple and inexpensive, and there are no longer any adverse tax or duty consequences in making your bequest. You should speak to your solicitor or trustee about the provision you wish to make for the Foundation.

For a confidential discussion about a National Foundation bequest, please contact Greg Hamilton, Foundation Secretary, at bequests@nationalfoundation.org.nz or on 021 976 988 or 04 894 7016.
