Bequests and Endowments

Bequests and Endowments

Bequests

The NZ Football Foundation also welcomes bequests which can be gifts of personal property, money, stock, bonds or valuables which are directed to the Foundation by the provisions in your will.

We are exceptionally grateful to Noel Barkley, Gary Sayles, Mark Matthews, Bill Moran, Frank Van Hattum and Ken Billot who were the first to support the Foundation in this way. In bequesting to the New Zealand Football Foundation, you can also consider allocating a percentage of your estate to ensure other beneficiaries are not affected by the size of your eventual estate or by inflation.

Residual donations are also possible whereby an amount is left to be settled after providing for family, friends, debts and taxes.

Endowments

In addition to bequesting to the New Zealand Football Foundation, it is possible to benefit football by making the Foundation a beneficiary of your endowment fund.

In such cases, the Foundation would receive the interest (or a percentage of the interest) annually from the investment whilst the principal value is kept intact.

To find out more about making an Endowment, please contact NZFF, Chief Executive Melanie Longdill on 021 288 6933 or melanie@footballfoundation.org.nz.
