Types of gift
Leaving a general gift towards NZDA provides flexibility for us however if you wish to leave a gift in your will towards a specific purpose we are happy to honour your wishes.
Gift of property or items
If you wish to leave a gift of real or personal property or items it is preferable to discuss this with NZDA in advance - your items may be best gifted to the NZDA National Heritage Trust and so form part of the museum collection.
The 'residue' is the term used to describe what property of yours is left over after the deduction of specific gifts, debts, legacies, tax and the expenses of administration.
Specified sum or assets
You may prefer to leave a specific amount of money, real estate, shares, bonds, items or a nominated gift to the charity.
NZDA endowment fund
Money held in the fund is invested as capital and left to build over time. The Society is able to use a portion of the earned interest annually to fund its conservation work which means the impact of your gift is felt on a daily basis.
