Making a provision in your will to donate to Momentum Waikato is a special way to honour the Waikato community.  Big or small, your bequest will make a positive difference, now and for future generations.

The good news is, it is simple and easy to leave a lasting contribution. Working with your professional advisor, we offer our expert knowledge to meet your giving aspirations, tailoring a giving solution that brings to life your values and is structured in the way you want.

We recently received a $100,000 bequest to our Waikato Future Fund, from a donor who wished to remain anonymous.  Our generous donor had also given during her lifetime, donating $20,000 to our environment special interest field, which will make grants to organisations influencing environmental outcomes in the Waikato region.

Not only did our donor experience the joy of giving while she was still alive, her decision to leave a bequest ensures her legacy will be felt for generations.

Through our Waikato Future Fund, gifts are invested in perpetuity, and returns on investment granted to causes that the donor cares about.

We use independent professional investment managers, Craigs Investment Partners and Forsyth Barr, to provide expert fund management and advise.

As you consider including Momentum Waikato in your will, you might be inspired to know the funds generated from our Waikato Future Fund have funded the following social enterprises:

  • Zeal Hamilton’s Street Youth Work initiative, which aims to reduce the youth crime rate in the CBD by 20% by placing trained youth workers on the streets.
  • Ka Pai Kai, who provide healthy school lunches to children in South Waikato and a training café for students.
  • Puniu River Care, who are planting 80 million trees, restoring land and enabling communities to have access to healthy water.
