Leave a gift in your will

One way we can ensure the future of not-for-profit organisations like GCF is to include them in our wills. Our legacy can help keep families together in the future. There are three ways to do this:

  • Specific bequests, such as land, jewellery or shares
  • General bequests, such as a percentage of the estate or a specific sum of money
  • Residual bequests, which is the balance of an estate once other bequests and costs have been deducted

Gifts may be specified for general activities, such as education and awareness, or for research.

GCF is registered with www.perpetualgiving.co.nz. If you need to make or update a will, it costs only $100 through this site. Choosing GCF or other worthy causes is part of the online process. The site offers an important service, as anyone with assets should have a will.

Gifts to GCF must be recorded by your solicitor, whether you are creating a new will or making an amendment, called a codicil, to your existing will. All gifts are confidential, but we welcome the opportunity to thank you in your lifetime so please contact us to let us know your intentions.

If you have any questions, please contact our Executive Officer, Liam Willis, at liamw@gutcancer.org.nz or 027 627 4048.
