Leave a gift in your will and achieve a lasting legacy

Remembering The Wellington City Mission in your will is a great way to help Wellingtonians who need it most and is an opportunity for you to leave a lasting legacy. A Bequest is one of the most effective and easiest ways you can help secure our future, and the future of people in need in the wider Wellington region.

You can arrange a gift of a specific amount, a percentage, part of your estate or even all of it. You might also consider making a gift of a specific item such as a property, a personal item like a painting, or shares. Any gift is welcome however small or large.

Free Will Service

You can update your Will or get a Will for free. A legacy gift, no matter how large or small, won’t cost you a thing. We recommend visiting Succeed Legal by phoning (04) 909 3743 or emailing or and just mention The Wellington City Mission at the time of scheduling an appointment.

Let us know you’ve left a gift

Letting us know about your plans is a good thing, as we want to keep you informed of the impact of other Legacy Supporters, as well as to acknowledge and thank you.
