About bequestsWe’re inspired by the belief that no matter what, children should come first. By leaving a gift to Barnardos in your will, you would be helping us to fulfil that vision for vulnerable New Zealand children in the future. You can be certain that any gift that you leave towards our vital work in New Zealand will make a huge difference.
Every child is born full of possibilities and potential. Unfortunately, the realisation of their potential for some children is limited due to their experiences of neglect, poverty, violence, mental or physical illness, Every day somewhere in New Zealand, Barnardos offers support and advice for vulnerable children and families. This has to continue if we are to put children first. You can share our commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable children by leaving a bequest to Barnardos. Every amount gifted will truly make a difference, ensuring that someone is there for New Zealand children in the future.
