A legacy (bequest) is an amazing way to make a lasting difference for the many families and communities who are helped by Auckland DHB.
You can leave a gift in your will (a legacy) that will save lives for years to come. Your legacy may mean ground-breaking equipment can be purchased, or a crucial piece of research can transform the way healthcare is delivered.
As there are new medical advancements every day, to ensure your gift has the biggest possible impact, we encourage you to leave your gift towards ‘general charitable purposes’. If you’d like to speak to someone about leaving a gift to a specific department or area, please contact us on 09 307 6039.
Whatever you decide, you can be sure your gift will go towards ensuring the future of healthcare in Auckland is world-class, providing greater positive health outcomes not only for Aucklanders, but for the whole of New Zealand.
Having a valid will means what you own goes directly to the people and causes you care most about. We know your family, friends and loved ones come first. Once they’re accounted for, and you’re considering the legacy you’d like to leave, would you consider leaving a percentage to the work of the Auckland Health Foundation?
Every gift, regardless of its size, is deeply appreciated. The reality is, your gift could save the life of a mother, father, sibling or best friend. It’s a powerful investment into the future of health across New Zealand.
It doesn’t take long to make a huge difference – a simple will can take as little as an hour to do. If you already have a will, you can still include a legacy to the Auckland Health Foundation by adding a codicil – a short legal amendment to your will.
If you would like a codicil document, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 09 307 6039.
You can choose to leave a lasting legacy that best reflects your wishes. There are three main types of gift for you to consider:
If you need to make or change your will, we suggest you speak to a solicitor to make sure your wishes are met. But we’re always here to answer any questions you have about including a gift to the Auckland Health Foundation.
Leaving a gift in your will to the Auckland Health Foundation is one of the best ways to support our work. In return, we promise:
Our success is not just the equipment, research and facilities our supporters fund, but the lives they enrich and save in doing so. Through your legacy, you can play an important part in enriching and saving lives in the future.
