Te Omanga Hospice Foundation
The Te Omanga Hospice Foundation is a registered charitable trust. It provides financial support to Te Omanga Hospice to help people live well with a terminal or life limiting illness. The hospice provides support and care for family and close friends during the patient’s illness, and in bereavement.
The Te Omanga Hospice Foundation was established in 2005 to help bridge a funding shortfall of nearly $3 million each year for Te Omanga Hospice.
The Foundation is a separate registered charitable trust whose primary purpose is to provide sustainability of the hospice. Income from bequests and supporter’s pledges is reserved to the Foundation’s endowment fund, which is used to help bridge the gap between government funding and the actual cost of providing services to patients and their families.
By supporting the Te Omanga Hospice Foundation, you will make a lasting contribution to support and safeguard the continuation of our services to the people of Hutt Valley, free of charge.
We invite individuals and businesses to become members of the Foundation. To find out more, please email our fundraising team on 04 979 6681 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

It is the Te Omanga Hospice Foundation’s role to safeguard the bequests received by the hospice which aren’t tagged for general operational costs.
Your bequest is a wonderful way to support the work of Te Omanga Hospice beyond your life-time. Your gesture of kindness means a great deal to the people we care for, and ensures the service remains free to all.
Your Bequest – which type is best?
Once you have taken care of your family and friends you can remember Te Omanga Hospice in several ways. A bequest can be whatever you can afford. No bequest is too small and it will be gratefully received and used effectively.
It can take a number of different forms:
- A specified sum of money;
- A percentage of the value of your estate;
- Specific gift of property, art, shares or bonds, antiques etc;
- The residue of your estate after provision for family and other beneficiaries. (The residue of your estate is what is left following payment of all debts and expenses and after payment of specific gifts to family and friends.)
Your Will is a legal document; if the wording is incorrect, or if your Will is not witnessed and signed properly, it can be invalid. It is best to have your legal advisor or Public Trust draft your Will for you, as you can then be sure your estate will be distributed as you wish.
If you already have a current Will and you know you would like to help Te Omanga Hospice, your legal advisor can easily add a codicil regarding your gift.
If you have questions about making a bequest please contact our Fundraising Team on 04 979 6681 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
