Donors may not be able to contribute as they may wish while alive but posthumous donations can be made through bequests. We have a leaflet outlining how people can contribute any amount of their choice through the settlement of their estate. Donors may opt to make a general donation or may wish to choose what their donations go towards, for example Youth Help Line costs or research.
This is another new funding stream for Youthline as we have only recently started to receive a few each year. While it is a potentially sensitive way to receive donations the feedback we have received from families of donors is extremely positive. Bequests have provided Youthline with a small but greatly appreciated number of donors who are generous enough to make a one- off contribution of their choice to help support young New Zealanders, their families and the communities they live in.
