Remember Newcomers In Your Will

Your will is probably one of the most important documents you will ever prepare. It is a unique opportunity to decide where your assets go and to leave a lasting legacy for the future.

You may never have considered leaving a bequest to supporting those who are in a vulnerable position, when arriving in a new place, and like many New Zealanders you may not have a current will.
Making a new will or making changes to an existing will is easy, especially since you do not need to give in your own lifetime. All you need to do is contact your lawyer or a Public Trust Office for assistance.

A bequest (sometimes called a legacy) is a gift nominated in your will to one or more non-profit organisations. Your bequest can take any combination of the following forms:

An outright gift of cash
A percentage of the overall value of your estate
A gift of real estate
An investment (artwork, jewellery, stocks etc)

If you wish to make a gift to support the work of Newcomers in your will, it is very important that you use our correct and legally incorporated name (New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils Incorporated) and the following wording:

'I bequest the sum of ______________(or_______% of my estate or _______% residue of my estate) free of probate and estate duties to New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils Incorporated for general purposes. I declare that the receipt of the Chairperson of the New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils Incorporated shall be sufficient discharge to my trustee.'
