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 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 New Zealand the opportunity to reach their full potential.

If you would like more information, or a confidential chat, please contact us at or phone (09) 302 5260.

More information about making bequests

Your solicitor or legal adviser will be able to advise you about a more detailed process

There are a number of ways you can help:

  • Add Child Poverty Action Group to your will. If you have already made a will, you can still leave a gift to 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.

Our legal name is Child Poverty Action Group Inc and our Charities Commission Registration Number is CC25387.

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 __________________________________________________________________
