September is Wills Month

 p63280 wills month campaign 2021 web image fa

Local law firms in Rotorua and Taupo have been supporting Geyser’s Wills Month promotion for a number of years. During the month of September, our partner firms listed below will make a simple change to an existing will to include a gift to the local community through the Geyser Community Foundation at no charge – in fact, some of them do this all year round! Of course, any additional changes to your will are charged at your solicitor’s rate – we recommend you speak to your lawyer first.

Thanks to our generous, local law firms, making it easy for you to leave a lasting legacy to your community through the Geyser Community Foundation.

Giving in your Will is an easy way to make a difference

We all know there are many charities and community groups doing awesome things in our local community who deserve our support.

Gifts made through the Geyser Community Foundation last forever. Funds are invested, and the investment income used to support local charities and community groups.

You can choose your favourite community groups to support or leave it up to Geyser to select those most in need.

Your questions answered …

Q. What is the Geyser Community Foundation?

Community Foundations provide a smarter way to give to the community you love. We can invest and grow your donations so the interest they earn can benefit your chosen local cause/s year on year, forever.

Q. Why would I give through Geyser instead of giving directly to a charity?

Our smarter giving model sets us apart from other charities. With us, your generosity can have impact for many, many years.

Q. How do I know what amount to leave when I don’t know how long I will live for and what will be left?

You don’t have to be specific. You can consider leaving a percentage of your estate or making Geyser an additional child in your will.

Q. I have a Trust, so what benefit would there be in giving through Geyser?

Using Geyser for your charitable giving minimises the burden of the management of your Trust after you and your advisers have passed on. There are also obvious economies of scale which lead to savings in administration and fees meaning more money for the charitable cause/s close to your heart.

Q. Can I contribute in a limited way during my lifetime?

Your gift. Your say. We have different ways you can give and donations of any size are welcome. Donations made during your life-time qualify for a tax rebate of 33.3% up to the limit of your taxable income.

 

With Community Foundations, you don’t have to be wealthy to have an impact. Whether it’s a large or small gift, a one-off or regular contribution, all giving makes a difference through us. Our smarter giving model allows your giving to have benefits that last forever.

  • Donated capital remains forever
