The Greatest Gift You Can Give
Leaving a gift in your Will to the StarJam Charitable Trust is one of the greatest gifts to our young Kiwis. Your legacy will create a future of new hope, new friends, new purpose and change lives.
We believe that all young New Zealanders with or without a disability deserve the opportunity to be the best they can be. Your kindness will allow StarJam to expand our regional activities and programmes to meet the increasing demand, and guarantee that many more children will experience the magic of StarJam.
How do I remember the StarJam Charitable Trust in my Will?
Leaving a gift in your Will is pretty straightforward. We advise you to consult your solicitor when preparing or making changes to your Will. The NZ Law Society and your local Citizens Advice Bureau can help you find a solicitor if you don’t already have one.
Updating an existing Will
One way to update an existing Will is to use a codicil. Your solicitor will advise you on how to do this.
Wording your Bequest
Once you have ensured you have taken care of your loved one, your bequest to the StarJam Charitable Trust can take a number of forms:
- A residue gift – the residue of your estate, or a share of it, after you’ve made provision for family and other beneficiaries.
- A specific gift – you can choose to leave a specified amount of money.
Some suggested wording for a simple cash gift to the StarJam Charitable Trust is as follows:
“I give to the StarJam Charitable Trust (registered charity number CC10557), the sum of $________ for its general purposes.
The receipt of the StarJam Charitable Trust will be sufficient discharge to my Executors/Trustee and they shall not be bound to see the application of this gift.”
If you intend to leave a bequest to StarJam in your Will, we would love the opportunity to thank you during your lifetime. For a confidential chat, please call Mary Ansell, CEO on 09 300 6257.
Thank you for considering the greatest gift of all to our Jammers.
