Gift in Will

You can become one of our Extraordinary Humans* through creating a legacy that will live on beyond your days and enable research and breakthroughs to continue to happen.

*Extraordinary Humans left a Gift in Will and helped make it possible for Dr Andy Wood’s ground-breaking research finding better ways to match cancer mutations to specific medicines. It has kept little Lucca alive and thriving.

This is just one of the many ways they’ve made a difference. 

“It makes me so proud to be part of a team that supports committed researchers who are leading the way with innovative, ground-breaking discoveries, solutions and support for children and young people affected by challenging health conditions. After all, everyone deserves a healthy childhood. Please consider leaving a gift in your Will to help us achieve our mission.” 
– Frances Benge, CEO, Cure Kids

How to leave a gift in your Will?

We recommend that you discuss your wishes with your family and your solicitor and get in touch with our team to discuss the best way to progress a gift to Cure Kids.

This would be either amending your will with your solicitor or signing an amendment to your latest will, called a Codicil.

Please feel free to get in touch.

Frequently asked questions

How do you decide which research projects to fund?

Cure Kids runs a robust process for assessing and selecting research proposals. All proposals are subject to appraisal by our Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee, comprising eight child health experts across a range of disciplines. Project Grant proposals which make it through the first assessment round are then peer reviewed, the gold-standard in research assessment. These reviewers, both international and local, are generally experts in the specific field, and are critical to providing expert judgement on the proposed research. All assessments, including final scoring, are done anonymously, which helps reduce any conflicts of interest, as well as any bias.

Will I get an automatic Tax Receipt for my donations?

Yes, we will ensure you are emailed or posted your annual tax receipt by the end of April for the previous financial year. Please ensure that we have your latest email or postal address to ensure you receive this.

If you’re making a one-off donation via our website, you will be sent a tax receipt automatically at the time of your donation.

Can I make a donation from overseas?

You definitely can! There are no special steps necessary, simply do so via our donate page. Do note that we only accept Visa and Mastercard.

How do I claim my tax rebate in New Zealand?

If you are a New Zealand taxpayer you can claim up to a third of your donation back at the end of the tax year. In order to do so, you will need to submit the IR526 tax credit claim form along with the donation receipts the following April. You can also do this online at the end of each tax year.

For individuals who donate via payroll giving, you receive immediate tax credits that reduce your PAYE payable, and do not need to wait until the end of year to claim your tax credits.
