How to change the future

How can you help people affected by dementia in your Will?

Alzheimers Canterbury recommends talking to a solicitor to write or update your Will. They will require our registered charity number to ensure your gift goes to the right place. Before getting in touch with them, you could start thinking about how you would like to give. You may want to give a: 

  • Residual gift: After providing for your family and loved ones, you can gift the remainder of your estate, or part of it, to Alzheimers Canterbury.
  • Percentage: You could divide your estate between a number of people and charitable organisations by allocating a percentage to each one.
  • Specific gift: This could be a specific sum, jewelry, real estate, shares or anything else you possess.

Our registered address:
Alzheimers Canterbury
PO Box 32 074
Christchurch 8147

Our registered charity number:

(Note that Alzheimers New Zealand is a different not-for-profit organisation.)
