We promise that a gift in your Will, however large or small, will be spent wisely and will make a genuine difference to people affected by leprosy.

However, you choose to look at it, arranging for a bequest in your Will is perhaps the greatest gift you can make - it is a powerful way to serve leprosy-affected families for generations to come. Your lasting gift will help us make our vision of a world without leprosy, stigma and discrimination a reality.

As you think seriously about taking this significant step, you may want to take time to reflect on what is important to you and your family.

Your thoughts may be with your own families and ensuring they are cared for in the future. A bequest to the Leprosy Mission is often considered as another child or grandchild, providing the same commitment for the future care and protection of people affected by leprosy.

Or perhaps the Leprosy Mission is your family. You have been with us throughout the years, following the progress of individuals and communities affected by leprosy, and your commitment to giving hope to future generations has no limits. Your lasting gift to the Mission ensures that your lifetime of committed support will continue to live on, giving us the opportunity to make our vision a reality.

For all, we are one family in Christ, and your lasting gift to the Leprosy Mission enables you to continue your support for the work you truly believe in.

Making a bequest in your Will: a step by step guide

Writing a Will is the only way you can be sure your loved ones are provided for after you are gone. You have complete control over the gifts you decide to leave, and you may even save on gift or estate duty. After you have taken care of your loved ones, you may wish to consider leaving a bequest to a cause that you care about, such as the Leprosy Mission.

Amending your existing Will with a codicil:

  • Decide what sort of bequest you would like to make - be it a percentage, a fixed amount, or an asset.
  • Make a note of the change on the codicil form opposite.
  • Give the form to your solicitor, who can then add the codicil to your Will.

Writing a new Will:

  • Make a list of your assets, the beneficiaries of your Will, and the executors.
  • Decide what sort of bequest will go to each beneficiary.
  • This is one of the most important documents you will ever sign. Ask for the professional help from a solicitor in drawing up your Will.

For a confidential discussion on writing or amending your Will, please contact our Executive Director, Gillian Whitley, on Free Phone at 0800 862 873.

Bequests leaflet 

Gillian can also send you a fascinating leaflet about bequests. It tells a beautiful story of how a lasting gift like yours can restore hope and family to those affected by leprosy. The easy process of including the Leprosy Mission New Zealand in your Will is also explained.
