We are custodians of the planet for but a moment in history. We inherit the earth from our ancestors and in turn bequeath it to future generations.
Making a Will. Doesn’t sound exciting, does it?
But if you’ve cheered on as Greenpeace chase after whaling boats, climb power plant chimneys and face all sorts of dangers to defend the natural world - or if you’ve joined in protests yourself - why stop?
A gift in your Will means you’ll still be standing up to the environmental criminals, still be protecting our precious oceans and forests, still be preserving species and making all our lives better, even when you’re gone.
So go on, be a rebel. Remember Greenpeace in your Will.
If you do decide to make this special kind of gift to Greenpeace, it’s important that you use our full legal name so your gift can go towards helping Greenpeace campaigns:
Greenpeace New Zealand Incorporated
And in case it’s useful, an example of the wording you could use is below:
“I give to Greenpeace New Zealand Incorporated ___% of my estate OR the rest and residue of my estate OR the sum of $_____ for its general purposes free of probate and estate duties payable upon or in consequence of my death. I declare that the receipt of its Executive Director, Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my executors.”
