Leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will, no matter how big or small, means that Life Flight can continue to help those that need it.

Every six hours somebody needs Life Flight

Leaving a gift in your Will, no matter how big or small, means that we can continue to help the thousands of people each year that need our urgent help.

Life Flight ensures those people facing a medical emergency can reach the best possible medical care. This dramatically improves their chance of survival and recovery.

Life Flight – Saves time. Saves lives.

For every mission Life Flight must raise $4,000 from the community, and each year we face significant funding challenges. Many of the missions carried out are only possible thanks to the gifts left to us by people, just like you, in their Wills.

Everybody over the age of 18 should have a Will regardless of their level of assets. A Will sets out how you want your affairs managed after you have gone, making your wishes known so that things happen the way you want them to.

By making a lasting gift to The Life Flight Trust you will help create a safer New Zealand for future generations.
