We rely on the generous donations from our communities to keep our specialist palliative care free of charge for those living with a life-limiting illness. Please click the Donate Now button if you would like to make a donation to Hospice.
Regular Giving Campaign
Join a growing number of loyal supporters who have set up a regular gift to make a big difference in the lives of many.
Regular supporters give a set donation of their choice each month, ensuring that Hospice can provide quality care to all that need it.
Giving regularly using an automatic payment from your bank account means being able to contribute a manageable amount at a frequency that suits you. Fortnightly, monthly, quarterly or annual options are available, and no amount is too big or too small. Joining this ‘group’ is a great help to us so we can budget effectively and plan ahead.
It's easy and convenient too, as we are able to provide one consolidated receipt each year. You may be able to claim a tax credit of 33.33 cents for every dollar you donate. You will be in complete control of your gift, choosing how often you give, the amount you give and whether you want to give to the Mid North or Far North – it can also be paused or stopped at any time.
Thank you for your support!
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 trusts, Hospices are 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, the Hospice of your choice is able to receive 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 and Far North Community Hospice, Chief Executive 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.
