Make a gift

Leave a Bequest in your Will

The Trustees of The Ballet Foundation know that the decision to leave a gift in your will is an important and personal one. If you  are considering including a gift in your will, we would love an opportunity to have a confidential discussion about your support and to assist you with any questions you may have. A gift can be of any size and needn’t be cash. It could be property, a work of art, shares or a portion of whatever is left of your estate after you have provided for your family. It could be for a specific purpose, such as the work of the Royal New Zealand Ballet, or for the general purposes of The Ballet Foundation in supporting classical ballet throughout New Zealand.

Suggestions on appropriate wording for your will can be found here: codicil for general purpose.

If you have already made arrangements to leave a gift to The Ballet Foundation of New Zealand and are happy to let us know, we would love to hear from you so that we may acknowledge (either publicly or privately) your generosity during your lifetime and involve you and your family in the work of the Foundation.
