Nikau Foundation - Make a Will for Free Week

Nikau Foundation, the community foundation for the Wellington Region, has partnered up with Wellington/Kāpiti law firm Wakefields Lawyers.

Register your interest between 3rd-7th July and Wakefields Lawyers will make or change a simple will for free when you include a donation to your community via Nikau Foundation.

Many people think that gifts in wills are only for the wealthy. Not so. Once you have made provision for your family and friends, it’s easy to leave a small percentage of your estate to a something you are passionate about - whether it is scholarships to young musicians; a donation to a geographic region like Kāpiti; an area of interest like conservation; or to a specific charity like Womens’ Refuge.

You can support any charitable cause through a gift to the Nikau Foundation, Wellington’s community foundation. No gift is too big or too small; your gift keeps giving forever because all donations are pooled and invested. The capital remains intact, and the investment income is used to make distributions annually to charities and community groups across the greater Wellington Region according to your wishes.

For more information, visit www.nikaufoundation.org.nz

Please note that the work on the will can be completed at any time, but you need to register your interest by July 7th.


Nikau Foundation

• The Nikau Foundation is an independent community charitable trust that attracts gifts, trusts and legacies and invests them to preserve the capital and generate income.
• The income from these investments is distributed to charitable organisations in accordance with each donor's wishes.
• The Foundation’s primary aim is to provide a simple, effective and long-lasting way for people in the Greater Wellington region to give to local causes now and in the future.

Gordon Campbell: On Chilling The Warm Fuzzies About The US/China Trade Deal

Hold the champagne, folks. This week’s China/US deal is more about a change in tone between the world’s two biggest economies – thank goodness they’re not slapping more tariffs on each other! - than a landmark change in substance. The high walls of US and Chinese tariffs built in recent years will largely remain intact, and few economists are predicting the deal will significantly boost the growth prospects for a slowing US economy. As the New York Times noted this morning, the likes of New Zealand will still face the trade barriers imposed by the Trump administration during the recent rounds of fighting. More>>
