Make your last gift count - Bequests

If you are including Child Poverty Action Group in your will, your last gift will be a part of the future work we do towards eliminating child poverty in NZ. 

Gifts left in wills are an important source of income for the Child Poverty Action Group. Any amount, large or small, will help. We are always grateful for what you can give.

We don't need you to tell us if you are planning on making a bequest, but your decision today is so very important in giving every child in NZ the opportunity to reach their full potential.

If you would like more information, or a confidential chat, please contact Celia on  (09) 302 5260 or  027 367 8299

Adding us to your will

If you have already made a will, you can still leave a gift to the Child Poverty Action Group, it's a simple easy process to update your will.

Percentage of your estate

By nominating a percentage of your estate, your donation is more likely to keep pace with inflation and is of the greatest possible value to CPAG.

Residue of your estate

After your estate is settled, and the nominated parties have been taken care of, you can gift any amount left over to CPAG.

Direct or indirect bequest

Your bequest may be left to be used for certain purposes within CPAG eg. education, advocacy, research or operational costs. Or you can ask the funds to be directed where it is most needed.

 

Here is an example of wording for leaving a bequest to CPAG

"I give and bequeath the sum of $_____________ (or) __________ % of my estate, (or) residue of my estate, (or) property or assets as follows
