Remembering children in your Will

Would you like to find out more about leaving a legacy to UNICEF?

fill out your details and we'll get in touch.




UNICEF New Zealand is taking part in 'Include a Charity week’ from Sunday 28th September to Sunday 5th October 2014.

We have joined with many of New Zealand’s most-loved charities, and are working together to encourage more people to include gifts in their Wills to their favourite charities, after they have looked after their family and friends of course.

Include a Charity hopes to make leaving a gift to a charity a real option for all New Zealanders.

You have the power to change children’s lives long after your own lifetime.

Our life-saving work relies entirely on voluntary donations, and bequests make an extremely valued and important contribution. They ensure we can plan our long-term work for future generations of children. And by gifting a legacy or bequest to UNICEF, you will make a tangible difference to impoverished and vulnerable children.

UNICEF is the world’s leading advocate for children, working in 190 countries and saving more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organisation. We work with all children everywhere, regardless of religion, ethnicity or background.

We welcome your inquiries about leaving a gift in your Will to children.

Please contact John Daysh, UNICEF’s Bequest Manager, who will be happy to talk to you. John can send you an Information Pack, or if you would prefer, can arrange to visit you.

You can call John free on 0800 243 575 or e-mail john@unicef.org.nz

Or you can visit Frequently Asked Questions about Legacies.

Sir Roger Moore believes that by leaving a bequest to UNICEF in your Will, you can make a real difference for children.

Helen Grofski: Making a difference for children in the future

“I have never had the joy and responsibility of raising children but as I travelled on my journey through life and around the world I was very aware that so many children exist in what are hopeless situations."

"Like many other New Zealanders, I have supported various charities, but when I heard of the UNICEF Kora Lang Society I was interested because through the work of UNICEF I will still be involved with the care of needy children long after I have passed on.”

Helen is a retired nurse, and she has included UNICEF in her Will.

She is a celebrated member of the UNICEF Kora Lang Society.
