Include a charity – leaving a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift that will live on after you

A bequest is a gift left in a Will. Most bequests are made by ordinary people who want to make a positive difference after they’re gone.

For more information, download our Bequest booklet here.

Why leave a gift to Bible Society?

By making a gift to Bible Society in your Will, you’ll be supporting the Bible cause after you’re gone, ensuring that the work of making the Bible accessible to everyone will continue for future generations. Your gift will help transform lives.

Leaving a gift in your Will to Bible Society

By making a Will you can specify how you wish your estate to be distributed to your loved ones and to the causes that are important to you, like Bible Society.

  1. Ask us for more information about how a gift in your Will may benefit the mission. Please contact us on 0800 424 253 ext 848.
  2. Arrange to see your legal advisor about making a Will or changing your existing Will to include Bible Society New Zealand. Your advisor can help you decide what type of bequest you want to leave. Bible Society’s legal name is: The Bible Society in New Zealand (Inc). Charities Registration number: CC22121
  3. Bequests can be for any amount. Some consider smaller bequests (say 5% of the value of your estate) as an option that sits most comfortably with other beneficiaries of your Will. 
  4. Let us know your intentions. We understand the details of your Will are private, but we’d love to have the opportunity to say thank you and perhaps acknowledge your support in a way that’s acceptable to you. If you’d like your gift to remain anonymous, your request, of course, will be honoured.

Neville’s lasting legacy

Neville Taylor loved the Bible. He made it his life’s work to ensure the Mbai people in Chad could read the Bible in their own language. His passion for the Bible was so strong he wanted to continue the legacy of Bible work after his death by making a gift to Bible Society in his Will.

His gift will have an impact not just on this generation but for several to come.
