We’re grateful for all donations, which assist us to continue with our restoration programme.  To visit Waikato RiverCare's Give-a-little donation page, please click on the button below.





Making provision in your Will to donate to Waikato RiverCare is a way to assist in the ongoing restoration of our riverine environment.


Your bequest will be greatly appreciated whether it is a small or large amount and will assist us in continuing in the restoration work which is so important to the biodiversity of the region.


A bequest gives you the option of leaving a specific amount or a percentage of your estate to Waikato RiverCare.


How to make a bequest
Making a bequest is relatively simple and you don’t need to make a whole new will. If you have a will you need to add a codicil, a supplement to a Will that to alter or modify it.  This should be checked and approved by a legal advisor.  If you don’t have a Will, it is best to talk with a legal professional as a will is a legal document. Your advisor will discuss options and wording with you.


Wording for a bequest
A wording format is shown below:

"I give and bequeath the sum of $_____________ (or) __________ % of my estate, (or) residue of my estate, (or) property or assets as follows



free of all charges, to Waikato RiverCare. The official receipt of the Chief Executive or other authorised officer of the Trustee is an absolute discharge to my executors."
