What is legacy

A legacy is a gift left in your Will, sometimes referred to as a bequest. It’s a simple way of giving that costs you nothing in your lifetime – but these amazing donations make a lasting difference for vulnerable children.

By leaving a gift in your Will to UNICEF New Zealand, you will be creating a safer, brighter world for children.

Request a legacy booklet to be posted or emailed to you. You’ll find information about writing your Will, types of bequest and how you can be part of the generation that leaves behind a safer world for children.

creating a safer world for children

"I am making a bequest to UNICEF because of the range and complexity of relief work it has been doing for many decades. UNICEF’s size and experience means it can get to disaster areas very quickly and distribute aid straight away. I like to think that in a small way my contribution will help after I am gone."

Roger Hall
UNICEF Legacy Ambassador

"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.I will still be involved with the care of needy children long after I have passed on."

"There are many needy children around the world who UNICEF is helping with health and education. Many now have hope for a better life. So I have included UNICEF in my Will and it makes me happy to know my support will be helping children long after I have gone.”

Types of legacy gifts

You do not have to be wealthy to leave a legacy. Whatever the size of your gift, in our hands it will go a long way.

Reversionay Gift

A reversionary gift allows you to leave your estate to your dependents while they are living, but after they pass away it will revert to UNICEF.

Pecuniary Gift

A pecuniary gift allows you to leave a specific amount of money to UNICEF. Whatever the amount, it is always gratefully received.

Residuary Gift

A residuary gift allows you to leave UNICEF a share of your estate once your family has been taken care of. 85% of our legacy income comes from gifts made in this way.
