You have the option in your Will to bequest a specific amount or a percentage of your estate to Hillary Outdoors. You can either leave your bequest without any strings attached (i.e. where Hillary Outdoors can freely apply the funds to areas where they are most needed) or you can specify how you would like the bequest to be used.
It is simple to make a bequest – you do not need to create a whole new Will. If you already have a Will, you can make a simple modification by adding a codicil (a codicil is a supplement to a Will that is intended to alter or modify it). We advise that your codicil is checked and approved by a legal advisor to ensure it is legal.
If you don’t have a Will, we recommend you getting one prepared by a legal professional because it is an important legal document. You can discuss options and specific wording with your legal advisor to make sure your Will reflects your wishes clearly, including any specific instructions on bequests.
You do not need to tell us that you are leaving a bequest to Hillary Outdoors, however should you choose to, we would like to ensure we thank and acknowledge your generous giving. We assure you that any bequest enquiries or communication will be treated with the strictest confidence by Hillary Outdoors. If you choose to remain anonymous, we will respect your wishes.
“Hillary Outdoors (OPC) is, in my view, one of the most worthwhile undertakings in New Zealand”

GIVE A LITTLE
Payroll Giving is a scheme, which allows you to donate to Hillary Outdoors as one of the charities registered with the IRD via a direct deduction from your wages. That means you won’t need to keep receipts or wait until the end of the year to claim your tax back.
Payroll giving allows employees to ‘give as they earn’ by making donations directly from their pay to approved organisations. For every dollar an employee donates they receive a third back as a tax credit in the same pay period.
Because payroll giving is voluntary, employers have the choice of whether to offer the scheme to their employees. Donations are made through the employer’s payroll system.
Depending on how the scheme is set up, the frequency and amount of donations chosen by employees can change at the employee’s discretion.
If you’d like to make a regular donation to Hillary Outdoors via payroll giving:
- Ask your employer (your Manager, or the Accounts/HR/Payroll dept) if they offer Payroll giving and if they do;
- Print and complete a copy of the Payroll Giving Request Form and give it to your employer
If your employer does not offer payroll giving then don’t worry, you can still make a monthly donation via credit card or direct debit direct to us instead. Don’t forget to file a tax return at the end of the tax year though to claim your tax credits back
