FUNDRAISE FOR US

If you'd like to create your own fundraising campaign for MND NZ, we recommend using the Everyday Hero website. It's a great way to show your support or honour the memory of a loved one.

In Loving Memory

Create a tribute page on Everyday Hero.

The campaign could be your own (see our A–Z of ideas, below) or a popular event in your local community (eg a walk or run). Everyday Hero has a list of current events on its website you can choose from.

Friends, family and colleagues can sponsor you by making a donation on your Everyday Hero fundraising page, using a secure credit card facility. Your fundraising page keeps a running total of the funds raised.

Click the green 'Start Fundraising' button on our Everyday Hero page. In just a few minutes you can create your own fundraising page, then start sharing the link via email, text, websites and social media.

Legacies and bequests (gifts left in people's wills) are a vital part of MND NZ's income. After providing for family and friends, leaving a legacy to MND NZ in your will is a wonderful way of supporting our ongoing work.

By supporting us through a bequest you will help us maintain a free-of-charge nationwide fieldwork service for New Zealanders with MND, raise awareness and understanding of MND, and support MND research. By leaving a bequest you are not only helping our current financial situation, but making a real difference to our ongoing and future needs.

Your lawyer, the Public Trust Office or a Trustee Company will be able to explain to you the various ways in which you can create your will.

If you already have a Will, you can include a Codicil (amendment or addition) to incorporate your bequest to MND NZ.

 

Living Giving

Living Giving enables someone to donate to an organisation during their lifetime rather than leaving a bequest in their Will.

For example: A person making a bequest of $10,000 to MND NZ in their Will might choose to instead donate $2,000 each year over a period of five years. They can then claim a tax rebate of $666 each year (assuming their personal tax paid is over $666).

Of course we would be delighted if the donor then chose to also donate the annual tax rebate to us. Over the five-year period of the example above, this would compound in a similar way to compound interest, resulting in a total of $15,000 being donated to MND NZ from the original $10,000.
