Our Guardian Angels

Fr. William Wasson founded NPH in 1954. Thanks to the foresight and generosity of many people who have given bequests in their wills, NPH has grown to help hundreds of thousands of children and families across 9 countries in Latin America. These people are our Guardian Angels!

Why leave a gift in your will to NPH New Zealand?

Isn’t it the greatest of gifts, one that will live on for years after you?

Keep on supporting

By leaving a gift in your will, you’re able to continue supporting the vulnerable children and families that NPH NZ serves.

The good news is that including a charity in your will is just as easy as providing for your loved ones. It can be as much or as little as you want.

Be the difference

You don’t have to be rich or famous to make a difference. Whoever you are, whatever your situation, you can help make a difference in the lives of our children by including NPH New Zealand in your will.

Leave a memory

Including NPH New Zealand in your will is a way to bring dignity, meaning and purpose to a life well lived. It is an opportunity to continue to support the children that you’ve helped during your lifetime, or perhaps a chance to help when you were unable to support in the past. You, and your values, beliefs and generous philanthropic role modelling, will live on in the memories of those you support.

Give back

Perhaps you were supported by an amazing organisation, friend or family member during your life. Perhaps you were unable to give back as generously as you would have liked. A bequest in your will is a great way to ensure that the vital work of charities carries on to support others in times of need.  

If you are considering becoming a ‘Guardian Angel’ please get in touch. We would love to send you a bequest guide and answer any questions that you have.

Our Guardian Angels!

“Having been supporters for two decades, we are firm believers in both the huge need for NPH and its wonderful record in changing the lives of thousands of children. That’s why we decided to include NPH in our wills – so our help will continue to support their tremendous work.”
– Ray & Mary Waldmann

“We feel very good about our decision to include NPH as one of our principal beneficiaries in our will. We have personally witnessed hundreds of ‘real stories’ telling about how the lives of high-risk children have been transformed – becoming good citizens and change-agents in their own countries. The grounding NPH values of providing quality EDUCATION, unconditional LOVE and instilling a strong sense of personal RESPONSIBILITY really works!” – Pat and Julie Callahan
