Leave a legacy

By making provision in your will (often referred to as leaving a bequest) for Heritage New Zealand - you can provide a lasting gift for our nation’s heritage, a gift that will last forever.

Every gift counts, every bequest helps to preserve our heritage for the benefit of present and future generations. Some of our most significant sites – among them Kemp House in Kerikeri (New Zealand’s oldest existing building), Alberton in Auckland and Fyffe House in Kaikoura – have been gifted or bequeathed to us.

After you have taken care of your loved ones, a gift in your will could help to ensure that historic places like those above will still be enjoyed by your children, their children and generations to come.

Every sum, no matter how small is welcomed!
