Standard bequest clause

To ensure the wording in your Will accurately describes your intentions; the following clause should be included:

Updating Your Will

You don't need a new Will to add a bequest to Parents Centre New Zealand Incorporated. You can simply add a clause known as a 'Codicil' to include Parents Centre New Zealand Incorporated. A Codicil is a document that amends, rather than replaces a previously executed will.  A Codicil needs to be witnessed, signed, and returned to your solicitor and is a formal addition to the principal Will and allows for simple adjustments to be made if required.

Should you wish to tell us your plans, it allows us the pleasure and opportunity to thank you for your generosity and you can rest assured that the strictest of confidentiality will be upheld.

Many thanks for considering supporting parenting in New Zealand in this way.
