Make a bequest


Victim Support is a free service advocating and supporting victims.  We are responsive to victims’ needs and are there for them no matter the location or time of day or night.

Why leave a gift?

You can help ensure we are there for people now and in the future by remembering Victim Support in your Will.

Only with your help can we continue to deliver quality and responsive services for people whose lives have been shattered by a serious crime or trauma.

Making a Will is an important part of planning for the future and ensure your wishes are carried out.  Leaving a gift to Victim Support in your Will, no matter how large or small, contributes significantly to our ongoing work.

Your gift enables us to help people by providing emotional support, information and assistance, so they can regain control of their lives.

A gift in your Will is a tangible and lasting gift and very special way of securing the future work of Victim Support.

Wording your gift

We recommend having your Will prepared by a qualified solicitor or trustee organisation.  This ensure that your Will is written correctly and reflects your wishes.

We suggest you consider using the following wording for your gift:
“After payment of all my debts, funeral and testamentary expenses and all duties, taxes and charges payable on my Estate at my death, I give to Victim Support (NZ Council of Victim Support Groups)

  • <insert amount> % of my Estate for the general purposes of Victim Support.” OR
  • the residue of my Estate for the general purposes of Victim Support.” OR
  • the sum of $<insert amount> for the general purposes of Victim Support.”
