Gifts By Bequest

Help support the future of the Alliance Française Palmerston North by including a bequest to the Alliance Française Palmerston North in your will.

Your bequest, whether modest or substantial, helps the Alliance Française Palmerston North maintain quality welfare, educational and cultural programmes for the Palmerston North and Manawatu-Wanganui residents.

Your gift can be simply stated in your will or codicil. The following wording is suggested for leaving a gift to the Alliance Française Palmerston North:

I give to the Alliance Française Palmerston North Incorporated, (% of estate, the residue of my estate, or sum of money, or description of property or assets) for general purposes, for which the receipt of an authorised officer of the Alliance Française Palmerston North Incorporated shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my trustees.

Should you wish your bequest to support a specific area of interest at the Alliance Française Palmerston North rather than general purposes, please contact us. By learning what is important to you, we can suggest ways your gift can help the Alliance Française Palmerston North fulfill its mission.

If you already have your will in place, you can include a gift to the Alliance Française Palmerston North by writing a codicil. A codicil is a document that amends, rather than replaces, a previously executed will. It may add or revoke a few small provisions, or may change the majority or all of the gifts under the will. Each codicil must conform to the same legal requirements as the original will, such as the signatures of the testator and, typically, two or three disinterested witnesses.

You should consult your legal advisor when making a will, or when adding a codicil to your existing will, to ensure it fully represents your wishes.

If your assets are held in a Family Trust, you may give your Trustees a simple Memorandum of Wishes stating that on your death you wish the Trustees to make a gift to the Alliance Française Palmerston North. Your Memorandum can describe the gift in a similar way to that set out above for a will.

For information about including a bequest in your will, please contact us.

All enquiries will be kept confidential.
