Steps for including Dementia Auckland in your will:
If you don’t already have a will, we encourage you to contact a trusted organisation like Public Trust, your solicitor or trustee. They will ensure your wishes are correctly and legally stated.
When considering a gift, we encourage you to take care of family and other loved ones first.
If you have an existing will, it’s easy to include a gift to Dementia Auckland.
Ask your solicitor to add a codicil, which is a short statement to be included.
The wording can be as follows:
I give and bequeath to Alzheimers Auckland Charitable Trust (CC46885) for its work taking care of individuals and carers affected by dementia [list here the percentage of estate, residue of estate or specific amount of money or items], free of all death and estate duties and I declare that the official receipt of Alzheimers Auckland Charitable Trust shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors.
