A Gift In Lieu

Have you got a special occasion coming up? Celebrate your special event (birthday, anniversary or wedding) by asking your family and friends to donate to Epilepsy New Zealand instead of buying a present. What better way to make your celebration even more exceptional than knowing that you will be sharing your happiness whilst gifting to people living with epilepsy.

Contact Ross ( if you would like information about how to word your request to your friends and family. 


Give hope, leave a legacy

A legacy, or a bequest, is a gift left in your will. It is a simple way to ensure Epilepsy NZ continues its valuable work by making a difference to the lives of people living with epilepsy.

For nearly 65 years, Epilepsy NZ has been actively supporting and advocating for the epilepsy community. As a charity, we rely heavily on the generosity of our members and donors to fund our services and to ensure our essential work continues. Together with your support, a bequest will make sure it does.

Your gift to Epilepsy NZ, large or small, will make a worthwhile difference and ensures that the causes that are important to you, continues.

To find out more information about what needs to be included and to register your intent, please refer to the forms below.

In Memoriam

Making a donation 'In Memory' of your loved one to Epilepsy New Zealand is an amazing way to pay tribute and remember them. You can ask friends and families to donate in memory ( lieu of flowers etc). 

A donation in memory not only makes a legacy for your loved one but also contributes to the lives of people living with epilpesy and the greater good of your local community.

You can download the form below to support people living with epilepsy in memory of your loved one.  Thank you so much for thinking of us during this difficult time.
