It’s “Include a Charity Week” – when New Zealanders are encouraged to leave a lasting legacy by including a gift to charity in their will. In 2015, $150 million in bequests was given to over 750 charities in New Zealand, and half of those were under $20,000 – so it’s not just something just for the super rich.
Youth Alive Trust relies on donations and grants to continue its support for families on the east of Christchurch. We’ve been doing it for 27 years and if you believe in the work we’re doing, would you consider giving a gift that lives on, helping others, long after you’ve gone?

Or if you’d like to talk to someone in person, or visit one of our programmes, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
