Remember Hospice in your will

Leave a gift in your will

Bequests are a simple yet powerful way to provide support for the causes that matter the most to you, with little or no impact on your lifestyle today. When you make your will, you have the opportunity to remember the important work of Warkworth Wellsford Hospice.

Every bequest, no matter how large or small, has an enormous impact on our ability to plan for the long term. Each gift helps provide vital support in our commitment to caring for families touched by terminal illness.

Your Bequest - which type is best?
Once you have taken care of your family and friends, you can remember Warkworth Wellsford Hospice in several ways:
Specific sum or percentage of estate
A specific sum for your bequest is one option, but it is a good idea to think about the effects of inflation on the amount. What may seem like a considerable amount now, may in fact be significantly reduced over time. Nominating a percentage of your estate will ensure your estate does the most work it can for Warkworth Wellsford Hospice.
Residue of your estate
Once your estate is assessed any gifts made and all expenses taken care of, you gift what is left to Warkworth Wellsford Hospice.
Specific gift of property
You may wish to name a property or name an asset that you would like to leave for the benefit of Warkworth Wellsford Hospice. You may like to check with us beforehand, to make sure that your gift matches our needs in the best possible way.

Your Bequest - how it should be worded

To ensure your bequest benefits Warkworth Wellsford Hospice as you intended, you need to use the following wording in your will:

"I give to the North Shore Hospice Trust, Warkworth Wellsford Committee, (% of estate, or the residue of my estate, or sum of money, or description of property or assets) for general purposes, for which the receipt of the Chief Executive or other proper officer shall be full and sufficient discharge to my trustees."

Your will - who will write it?

Your will is a legal document. If the wording is incorrect, or if your will is not witnessed and signed properly, it can be invalid. It is best to have your legal advisor or a Trustee company draft your will for you, as you can then be sure your estate will be distributed as you wish.

If you already have a will

Your legal advisor will encourage you to update your will every 4-5 years, or with any significant changes in your life. If you have a current will and you know you would like to help Warkworth Wellsford Hospice, you can easily add a codicil regarding your gift:

"I give to the North Shore Hospice Trust, Warkworth Wellsford Committee, (% of estate, or the residue of my estate, or sum of money, or description of property or assets) for general purposes, for which the receipt of the Chief Executive or other proper officer shall be full and sufficient discharge to my trustees."

Your bequest - how we would like to thank you

We would love to know that you have contributed for the future of Warkworth Wellsford Hospice with a bequest in your will, so we can thank you. Your bequest is completely confidential unless you wish to make your gift known.
