Leave a Legacy Gift
Do something amazing today that will make a difference tomorrow. By setting up a gift in your will you can make a long-lasting difference and provide hope to those living with endometriosis.
Including a gift in your will helps us plan for a future, where teenage girls and women / wāhine with endometriosis who need support, can have it. Bequests pledged in the past provide our vital services today, just as gifts pledged today will help us to be there in the future as well.
It's easy to make a gift in your will. Speak to your solicitor/trust company about making a will, or changing your existing will to include Insight Endometriosis. If you already have a will you can have a codicil (or an addition or amendment) to your will drawn up.
It is important to talk to your family and loves ones about your will so they understand why you have made your decisions and ensure your wishes are carried out. Your gift, through your estate, will have a tangible impact on the lives of others in your community.
It’s up to you whether you tell us that you have arranged to leave a legacy gift. It is a private matter, however it is helpful for us to have this information so we can thank you in your lifetime. It also means you can begin supporting us now, by being a part of our planning.
There are four main types of gifts you can choose to leave to a charity.
Residual - The remainder of your estate after considering your loved ones
Percentage or fractional - A gift expressed as a percentage or fraction of your estate
Pecuniary or specific - A specified gift which can be money, property or stocks and shares
Whole estate - This comprises your entire estate and is usually left by those without beneficiaries or those wanting to achieve something very significant
Talk to your lawyer about the type of gift that will best suit you and your estate. Gifts left to charities in your will are exempt from inheritance tax and capital gains tax.
