We are so grateful that you are interested in leaving a gift in your Will to the Blind Foundation. Such a gift would help transform the lives of New Zealanders with sight loss for many years to come.

Why leave a gift in your will?

You won’t just be helping adults and children overcome the day-to-day limitation of vision loss. You’ll be helping them to live their passion and excel at whatever they choose to do.

11 year old Campbell
“It is because of people like you I will achieve my dreams.” Campbell, 11 years.

We rely heavily on the generosity of New Zealanders like you to fund our services. Gifts in Wills to the Blind Foundation are an incredibly important source of funds. A gift in your Will could help to:

  • Add new books to our talking book library – so people who go blind can still escape into stories.
  • Teach people how to learn (or re-learn) basic everyday living skills such as making a coffee or getting dressed.
  • Teach people how to use a computer without sight so they can stay connected with their friends, family and the wider community.
  • Train puppies to become guide dogs and help blind people open up a world of independence.

If you have already decided on leaving a gift in your Will to the Blind Foundation, making a legal Will is the only way to ensure your wishes will be met in relation to the distribution of your assets. A Will also helps to avoid confusion over your intentions and gives you peace of mind.
