Why make a bequest to Business Mentors

Making a bequest to Business Mentors can help us continue our work supporting the New Zealand business community with practical mentoring advice and assistance. 

The overriding benefits of the programme are to generate both economic wealth and employment for New Zealand and its communities through the building of the capability of the small and medium business sector.   This in turn, generates wealth and employment for New Zealand as a whole.

Your bequest can be for a specified amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residue of the estate after other bequests and outgoings have been met.


How to leave a Bequest

In order to add a bequest to Business Mentors, in your will, we suggest the following:  "I give to Business Mentors New Zealand the sum of $..... (or a percentage, or the residue of my Estate) for its general purposes and declare that receipt of the Chief Executive of Business Mentors, or other proper officer shall be sufficient discharge for my Trustee".

 


Changing an existing Will

Changing an existing will is not complicated or expensive.  Usually the simplest way to achieve the change, is with the addition of a codicil.  However in some cases, the drafting of a new will may be required.

We strongly suggest that you seek advice from a legal advisor or trustee company when arranging your will.
