Leave a Legacy

Help us continue saving lives by leaving a charitable gift in your will. Your contribution today will go towards the purchase of important medical equipment, ensuring that lives are saved now and well into the future.

Why leave a gift in your will?

There are many benefits to leaving a gift in your will. The first and most important is the knowledge that your gift is long-lasting and will ensure the survival and the advancement of our service for future generations. This means we will be able to continue the operation of three helicopters in the Auckland, Coromandel, Waiheke, Great Barrier Island and Rodney regions, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, enabling us to attend more than 1,000 rescue missions each year. Your gift will save lives.

How do I leave a bequest?

Leaving a bequest is a simple process that your solicitor can implement for you. Once you have provided for your loved ones, your solicitor can add a gift to our service. If you already have a will and just want to update it, your solicitor can provide a Codicil document for this purpose, which you will need to date and sign. To nominate the Auckland Rescue Helicopter for your bequest the suggested wording for you will would be:

"I give to the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust a specified share of the residue of my estate/or the sum of/or a specific bequest for its general purpose and I declare that the receipt of the Chief Executive or other Authorised Officer of the Trust shall be full and sufficient discharge of the said legacy.”

What is the Legacy Supporter Program?

By leaving a bequest, you will automatically be welcomed into our Legacy Supporter program. You will receive a welcome pack, a badge to wear with pride, and get invited to our annual events. You will receive a quarterly update of what has been happening with our service and get invited to other events throughout the year. The Legacy Supporter program is our way of thanking you for your future support of us.
