Leave a Bequest

Saving a life could be your legacy

Be part of our future work, and celebrate your life with a gift to your local Rescue Helicopter Service, and help us to continue to save lives in Hawke’s Bay.

Once you have provided for your friends and family please consider leaving the Hawke’s Bay Rescue Helicopter a gift in your will.  Choosing to leave a gift to the Hawke’s Bay Rescue Helicopter will cost you nothing and will not impact you now, and a gift in your will would help to continue to support those who need us.

Why should I leave a gift to the Hawke’s Bay Rescue Helicopter?

Our life saving services are free of charge and available 24 hours a day, 365 a year to anyone who may need them in Hawke’s Bay. We can only continue this work with the generous support of our community.

How much should I leave in my will?

Every gift we receive from all of our supporters – large or small – is important to us, and helps us to continue to save lives in Hawke’s Bay. Even a small percentage of your estate can make a big difference to us, whilst safeguarding both your intentions and your loved one’s interests.

Can I leave a gift to fund a specific area of work?

The wishes of our supporters are very important to us, so if you tell us what area of our work you would like your gift to support, we will make every effort to see that this happens. It is difficult to know which areas of our work we will need to focus on in future, so please contact us by phone on 06 878 1630 or email mfm@hbhrt.org.nz to discuss this in more detail. Likewise, if you would like your loved ones involved in decided on how your gift should be spent, we’d more than happy to help.

I have a will, how can I change it?

People are often hesitant to change their Will as they assume it will be difficult. In fact, it is a straightforward process, and you can update your Will whenever you choose – you simply add a codicil to your existing Will. 

  1. To add a codicil, ask your solicitor to help you to ensure that your wishes are carried out exactly as you intended.
  2. Include our full name ‘Hawke’s Bay Rescue Helicopter Trust'
  3. Please let us know about your gift so that we can thank you and keep you up to date with our vital work, which you will be part of through your legacy.

Should I tell you I intend to leave you a gift in my will?

You don’t have to tell us your decision; we completely respect your right to privacy, although we’d love to have the opportunity to say thank you, and to keep you up to date with our work.
