Donations to the AphasiaNZ Charitable Trust

We often take the gift of conversation for granted. But as the story of Roger so vividly illustrates, aphasia can happen to anyone and when it does, even the simplest conversation can become daunting. Donations help to fund our services, programmes and resources for people with aphasia. AphasiaNZ receives no government funding. Please contact us to help give a voice to people with aphasia.

Planned Giving

Whether support through an outright gift, or planned gift such as a bequest, all of our resources and programmes are made possible through the generosity and commitment of people like you. Bequests and other planned gifts sustain the work of AphasiaNZ.  A planned gift to AphasiaNZ helps us ensure the future of the services, programmes and resources we provide in our community nationally, and can help you further your financial goals.

What are planned gifts? The most common type of planned gift is a charitable bequest in a person's Will. Bequests can take a variety of forms:

  • Deferred bequest – This is a gift that provides for any relatives or friends during their lifetimes, but also benefits AphasiaNZ after their deaths
  • Percentage of estate – As the title would suggest, this is a gift of a specific percentage of your estate
  • Residual bequest – This type of gift involves leaving all or a portion of the remaining assets of your estate after all debts, taxes, fees and other bequests have been paid
  • Specific bequest – This is a gift of a fixed sum of money, property, shares and/or valuables of various descriptions

A bequest to AphasiaNZ, no matter how small, is an investment in the future of the community.

If you would like to receive our information package or discuss donating to AphasiaNZ, please contact the Executive Officer on 0508 274274.


Volunteering provides an opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, and give something back to your community.

Some of the many ways that volunteers can help us include:

  • Assisting us with social activities
  • Helping at Aphasia Hubs (special support group meetings)
  • Providing office support
  • Helping with fundraising projects

If you are interested in volunteering your time, please email us at info@aphasia.org.nz
