Leave a bequest
Give future generations safety, security and connection.
Every day our counsellors and social workers support children who have experienced more trauma than most of us could ever imagine.
Nurses and carers support fragile, lonely elders to feel supported and purposeful.
Imagine if you could give them a “magical treasure chest” with the power to change lives and create brighter futures. You can.
Leaving a gift in your Will is an incredible way of leaving a legacy of caring in your community.
Will you leave a lasting legacy?
A bequest, no matter the amount, can make such an incredible difference to children and families facing poverty, grief, anxiety, depression or abuse. It can give elders back the sparkle in their eyes by providing meaningful activities, social connection and beautiful surroundings.
In leaving a gift to PSC in your Will, you’ll be supporting and empowering those most vulnerable and at-risk in your community. It means you can continue providing for those who depend on you today, while also knowing you’re supporting the causes that are important to you when you’re gone.

How to leave a gift to PSC in your Will
Leaving a bequest in your Will may seem daunting, but it is actually a straightforward process. The first step is to contact your solicitor or professional trustee. They will make sure your wishes are clearly and accurately recorded in your Will or added to your existing Will.
As your Will is a legal document, it is important to seek the right advice and wording from your lawyer, however, to leave a bequest to PSC or our Family Works or Enliven services, we suggest the following wording.
“I give to Presbyterian Support Central ‘a percentage of my estate’ or: ‘the residue of my estate’, or: ‘the sum of $’, for general purposes. I declare that the receipt of Presbyterian Support Central signed by the Chief Executive, or other proper officer, will be sufficient receipt and discharge for my trustees”.
Bequests ‘for general purposes’ will be used where the need is greatest. Alternatively, you may prefer to support and specify an area of our work that is of special interest to you.
- Official name: Presbyterian Support Central
- PSC Charity Registration Number: CC11182
- Address: PO Box 12706, Thorndon, Wellington 6144
Types of bequest gifts
You can remember Presbyterian Support Central in your Will in a number of ways.
- A percentage: you can leave a nominated percentage or fraction of your total estate.
- A specific gift: You can choose to leave a specific amount of money, real estate, shares or any gift you wish to nominate.
- A residual gift: after providing for your family, you can nominate that you want to leave part, or all of what’s left of your estate to PSC. Its flexibility also means it is less likely to need updating over time.
