Caring for patients with a terminal or life limiting illness often results in a special relationship with the patients, their families, friends and supporters; special because it is often a brief yet very significant time for all those involved.
A bequest is a wonderful way to support the work of Te Omanga Hospice beyond your life-time. It’s a gesture of kindness which means a great deal to the people we care for, and ensures our service remains free to all.
Our vision is that everyone with palliative needs in our community receives responsive, proactive and equitable care. Please consider supporting our vision by leaving a gift to Te Omanga Hospice in your Will, once you have looked after your family and friends. Your bequest will ensure we can still be there for people who need our support for many years to come.
When you leave a gift in your Will to Te Omanga, you automatically become part of our Marion and Max Cooper Fellowship. We keep Fellowship members up-to-date with hospice news and invite them to special gatherings.

Bequests received by Te Omanga Hospice not specified as a gift for operational costs are transferred into the Te Omanga Hospice Foundation. The Foundation was established in 2005 to help bridge a funding shortfall of nearly $3 million each year for Te Omanga Hospice. It is a separate registered charitable trust and the Board is tasked with securing the financial future of the Te Omanga Hospice Trust.
