Donate through your pay

Donating through your pay (payroll giving) allows your regular donation to be automatically deducted from your pay.

You choose an amount that you want to give, and you can start, stop or change the amount of your donation at any time. Your employer deducts your donation directly from your pay, reduces your PAYE by the appropriate amount and then forwards the donation to Skylight.

Talk to your employer about payroll giving – it may already be available where you work. If it is, these three steps are all it takes to set it up:

  • Give your employer our details:
  • Tell your employer how much you would like to give and how often (e.g. each pay)
  • Let us know your contact details so we can say thank you, email [email protected] with your name and address.

Make a gift in your will

A gift in your will to Skylight, no matter how big or small, is a great way to ensure we will be here for future generations, building resilient children, young people, whānau and communities.

Please talk to us if you are considering making a gift in your will, as we would love to say thank you.

It is easy to make a gift in your Will (bequest) and we recommend you seek advice from a solicitor to draw up a Will. If you already have a Will, your solicitor/will-writer will be able to add a codicil to include a bequest to Skylight.

If, after you have ensured the people you care about are provided for, you decide to make a gift to Skylight in your Will, we encourage you to talk about your plans with whānau so they understand your wishes.

Suggested wording of a gift in your Will:

I give the sum of $ ……….. (or) ……………% of the residue of my estate (or) the residue of my estate (or) property or assets as follows ………………… free of all charges to Skylight (registered charity number CC27206 - also known as Skylight Trust). This bequest is given as an unrestricted gift for the general purposes of Skylight and I direct that the receipt of an authorised officer of Skylight shall be a full discharge for the Executor/Trustees.

If you’re thinking about leaving a gift in your Will, or want to know more about Skylight, our CEO, Heather Henare, would be happy to talk with you in confidence. You can contact Heather on 04 939 6767 or at [email protected]
