Your Will - Your Wish

We invite you to become a Wish Champion

Naming Make-A-Wish New Zealand in your will is a powerful, generous and life changing gift.

Your support, extending beyond your life, will ensure that we can continue to grant the wishes of children throughout New Zealand struggling with critical illnesses.

By becoming a Wish Champion through your legacy, you will bring hope, strength and joy to critically ill children, and their families, who are experiencing extremely challenging hardships.

There are a number of ways you can include Make-A-Wish in your will. After providing for your loved ones, you could:

  • Designate the residual of your estate to Make-A-Wish
  • Leave Make-A-Wish a percentage of your total estate
  • Allocate money, items or property to Make-A-Wish
  • Establish a trust fund where the interest earned is donated to Make-A-Wish

To assist you in writing or updating your will, we have developed a Bequest Form with suggested wording.
