Leave a gift in your will

You can make a lasting impact by leaving a gift in your will to SUNZ. A bequest can be a specific sum of money, a percentage of your estate, or specified goods or property. Find out more here.


You can donate your tax rebate

All charity donations over $5 are eligible for a 33.33% tax rebate from New Zealand’s Department of Inland Revenue (IRD). Yet, half of all donation rebates, made to New Zealand charities, are left unclaimed.

You can claim a rebate at any time, for any donations made in the previous 4 years, if you were earning taxable income at the time.

Once you’ve received your tax receipt, submit this via your MyIR account at This is the easiest way to claim your donation tax credit. The instructions for doing this can be found here.

Alternatively, you can complete an IR526 form and post along with your receipts to: Inland Revenue, PO Box 39090, Wellington Mail Centre, Lower Hutt 5045.

Many of our donors choose to donate their rebate back to SUNZ, transforming every $100 into $133! You can either do this by putting our name and bank details (02-0560-0036204-00) in box 9 of the IR526 form or by donating the rebate after you’ve received it yourself.
