Q: Why should I leave a charitable gift in my Will to The Life Flight Trust?

A: Choosing to leave a lasting gift to Life Flight means we will be able to continue to carry out lifesaving missions in your communities. This is a way to continue supporting the vital work we do, helping us save lives and make a difference, even after you’ve gone.

Q: Should I tell my family?

A: There is no requirement to involve your family in any decision you make concerning your Will, however we recommend you do. We extend an invitation to you and your immediate family to visit our Air Rescue Centre to gain a deep understanding for what we do and how important any lasting gift will be - how it can literally help save lives. Please contact us to arrange a visit.

Q: Do I need to let The Life Flight Trust know about my bequest?

A: There is no requirement to tell us about your bequest, however it can help us and give us confidence about our future. We would also like to thank you and make sure that we can communicate with you about the ongoing work we do – unless of course, you don’t want us to – then we would respect that too.

Q: Do I want my bequest specifically directed?

A: By keeping your gift nonspecific it will mean that we would direct it to the area most needed at the time we receive it. However, if you would like to discuss a specific initiative or purpose, please contact us and we can help you with this.

Q: Do I want my bequest to be recognized specifically?

A: We would love to talk with you about how your legacy can be honored and recognized or how your family can be involved with your gift after you have gone.

Q: What do I do now?

A: Get in touch with our Bequest Officer Sherry Herrick on 021 216 9972 or by email. You will need to seek independent advice, but talking to Life Flight is a good start. We are happy to help you start the conversation and explore your intentions, in the strictest confidence and without obligation.
