If you are passionate about leaving a lasting legacy for the work of HELP, you can arrange to leave us a legacy in your will. This is an incredibly significant way to help us eradicate sexual violence in Auckland should anything happen to you.
What Is A Legacy?
A legacy is an allocation you make in your Will where you may choose to leave money or an asset.
How Will HELP Benefit?
Should you pass, your bequest will ensure that we continue working with women and child survivors of sexual abuse in the Auckland region.
It will also allow HELP to continue its community and school education programmes to change the culture and attitudes around sexual violence toward women and children. You may choose a specific project or area of your choice within the range of services offered by HELP, or you may elect to offer your gift to HELP to be allocated across all areas of our work.
Dr Bill Daniels our Legacy Champion
Nearly 40 years ago I was working with the NZ Police and supporting women who had been sexually abused. It was very clear at the time that services for women in crisis needed to change. I, along with other dedicated support people, set up HELP Auckland. Although the service has grown, HELP still needs support to be able to truly listen, support and heal those affected by sexual abuse. Help by leaving a Legacy in your Will. This will make a major impact on services offered to those in crisis and in therapy.
What Do I Need To Do?
You will need a Will to make a legacy and most people have their Will drawn up by their solicitor.
What If I Already Have A Will?
If you have already made a Will but are now interested in supporting HELP with a legacy, you can do so by adding a codicil. This is an addition to your will which would include a bequest to HELP.
Can I Talk To Someone At HELP About This?
Of course. Even if it's just to ask us some questions, we'd love to talk with you about this. Please contact our Fundraising Manager - Ruth Davy.
