Project Jonah Stranding Advice Why Whales Strand 2

Leaving a gift to Project Jonah in your Will is a chance to extend your lifetime of support for marine mammals. By remembering us at this important time, you'll continue to play a vital role in the protection of these animals.

Making a Will doesn't have to be a difficult choice. After ensuring your loved ones are provided for, you can extend your generous support to the causes you've followed in your lifetime.

There is so much left to be done. Help us to continue our work in the future.
 
Making your Will

We recommend that you consult a solicitor, Public Trust or a trustee company when making or amending your Will. This ensures that your Will is correctly drawn up and that your wishes will be carried out exactly as you intended.

If you already have a Will, you can still leave a gift to Project Jonah by simply adding a codicil to it.
 
Types of gift

If you decide to include Project Jonah in your Will you will need to decide which of the following types of gift you'd like to make:
 
  • Residual gift. We're extremely grateful for any legacies we receive, however the most valuable kind of gift to Project Jonah is a residual gift (ie. a percentage of the net value of your estate after all debts, liabilities and other specific and pecuniary gifts have been paid). A residual gift ensures that your gift to Project Jonah doesn't de-value over time with inflation.
  • Pecuniary gift. The gift of a specified sum of money.
  • Specific gift. The gift of a specific item, for example, a property or shares.

A vital part of the money Project Jonah uses to carry out its work comes from gifts left in Wills. All bequests, large or small, will be put to work immediately, wherever the need is greatest.

Please email louisahawkes@projectjonah.org.nz for more information or call her on 09 302 3106 to discuss your needs.

We will not share your bequest information with any other organisations and all correspondence will be dealt with in strictest confidence.
