Include a Charity Week 6 -12 September 2015

Posted on 2 September 2015

Welcome to Include A Charity Week - a time to think about long term effectiveness in the lives and work of others.

Wellington Hospitals Foundation is a member of "Include A Charity". Include A Charity Week was launched in New Zealand in 2013 and has become an annual campaign aimed at raising awareness about the importance of charitable gifts in Wills. The simple fact is that without the generosity of normal, everyday New Zealanders, Wellington Hospitals Foundation wouldn't even exist. The campaign encourages Kiwis to include a charity in their Will. Bequests enable charities such as Wellington Hospitals Foundation to provide more effective services to the community. Each bequest the Foundation receives, no matter how large or small, helps us to plan ahead and fund longer term projects. Gifts in wills have a huge impact on the good work that we can do in the future.

Be the difference
Whoever you are, whatever your situation, you can help make a difference to the work of the medical professionals and lives of patients and their families at Wellington and Kenepuru Hospitals and Kapiti Health Centre by including a gift to a charity in your Will. No gift is too big or too small, and Wellington Hospitals Foundation will sincerely appreciate your gesture of support.

For more information, please visit the Include A Charity website, or contact Shona Brunton: Phone: (04) 806 2332 or email
