A bequest is your special gift to help keep the the legacy of Katherine Mansfield alive. Bequests can also ensure that the Category 1 Historic Place in which she was born remains a place of education, creativity and enjoyment for years to come.

By considering the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society in your will, you can help ensure future generations discover and appreciate this remarkable Kiwi icon. Bequests are an effective and much-needed way of keeping her legacy alive.

A bequest is an instruction within a will that reserves part of your estate (such as assets, shares or bonds, or money) for a particular beneficiary. Leaving a bequest is one of the most personal ways that you can support our work, and for some it is an opportunity to make a gift that you may not otherwise be able to make during your lifetime.

For more information, please fill in our contact form and the Chair of the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society will get in touch with you.
