No matter how big or small, a bequest is one of the most significant gifts you can make. It could change lives for better, making a big difference to New Zealand kids, young people or families who need it.

Your gift can be a specific sum, a percentage of your estate or even a specific property or asset. And how it’s used is up to you. You may be happy for us to use your bequest in the area of most need, or choose a specific programme, service or geographic area that is most special to you.

How to leave a bequest to the Y

If you don’t have a current will, it’s best to get in touch with your family solicitor or a trustee company, such as the Public Trust or NZ Guardian Trust. They’ll help you create a will that reflects your wishes, ensuring they’re clearly understood, and can include a bequest to the Y as part of this process. To do this, you’ll need the full name and address of the Y; YMCA Central Inc, 67 Pilmuir Street, Lower Hutt, Wellington 5010.

If you have an existing will, it can be updated to include a bequest to the Y by making a codicil (a codicil is an addition to your will). It’s important to do this process in consultation with your solicitor.

If you choose to include a bequest to the Y, we would like to know so we can personally thank and acknowledge you on behalf of those kids and families that will most benefit from your generosity.
