How to make a bequest


You, your family and your friends can remember Dove Hospice through a bequest and there are a number of bequest options.


Give a specific sum or percentage of your estate

A specific sum for your bequest is one option. Nominating a percentage of your estate will ensure your estate does the most work it can for the Dove Hospice.


Give the residue of your estate

Once your estate is assessed, other gifts made and all expenses taken care of, you gift what is left to Dove Hospice.


Make a specific gift of property

You can name a property or an asset that you would like to leave for the benefit of Dove Hospice.


It is important you get good advice if you decide to make a bequest. We too can discuss with you how your bequest can best contribute to our service.
To discuss what making a bequest might mean for you or for more information about how you might make a bequest, please contact Chief Executive Dove House Clinical Services, Janine Ewan on 09 575 4555 or mobile 027 4308719.

Pip Mills

A ‘Promise to Pip’ – Greg, colleagues and friends set up a Foundation while Pip was alive to assist with treatment costs and other needs. Following her death and in line with Pip’s wishes what remained of the fund became a bequest left specifically to help fund the continuation of the Art & Healing Table at Dove House.
