A bequest is a donation from your estate, which you give to family, friends or your designated charity. Bequests need to be recorded in your Will under the guidance of your legal advisor. As a registered charitable trust, Hospice Mid-Northland is able to receive bequests and greatly appreciates these generous contributions.
Your bequest can be:
- A specific sum of money or a percentage of your estate - what may seem like a considerable amount now may be significantly reduced over time. Nominating a percentage of your estate will ensure your gift is not restricted by inflation
- Residue of your estate - once all other gifts and expenses are taken care of, Hospice Mid-Northland receives what is left
- Specific gift of asset or property - which we can use or sell as appropriate
You can find out more about bequests here or you can contact Hospice Mid-Northland General Manager Belinda Watkins on 09 407 7799 to discuss how your bequest can serve Hospice and people living with a life-limiting illness in our community.
