MAKE A BEQUEST


Including a gift to Glaucoma New Zealand in your Will is a powerful way to make a positive difference to the outcomes of those with glaucoma and their families, far beyond your lifetime.

Glaucoma New Zealand is a registered (CC21421) charitable trust. It has a legally binding constitution to use all its resources to eliminate blindness from glaucoma in New Zealand.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in New Zealand which can be prevented with your help.

People leave bequests of all sizes and no gift is too small. Whatever, the size of your bequest, please be assured it will make a real difference to those with glaucoma, and the services Glaucoma NZ provide. Seek legal advice from your solicitor.

There are several types of bequests. Some people leave a nominated percentage of their Estate while others prefer to leave the residue of their Estate after the needs of family and friends have been met. Some specify a dollar amount or leave items such as shares, a house, jewellery, or a work of art.

You do not have to make a new Will to leave a gift to Glaucoma New Zealand. You can simply add a Codicil, which is an addition, to your existing will.
