Thank you for supporting our work and helping us to build a safe and inclusive society for future older generations in Otago
Age Concern Otago operates in an environment of increasing demand as people age.
Age Concern Otago's main funding is from membership and community grants, therefore we rely on donations to enable us to provide information, services, support and programmes to 10,000 older Otago residents per year. We receive only partial funding for our Elder Abuse Response Services of $110,000 from central Government. We rely primarily on the generosity of the community, which supports our work and we are deeply indebted to the efforts of 986 plus Volunteers who without their support we could not function.
Your donation will give lasting help to people from Otago in need. You can immediately support the work we do for Otago's older people by donating now.

Have you ever considered leaving Age Concern Otago a bequest in your Will?
Leaving a bequest to Age Concern Otago will directly help older people enjoy a full life for more than your lifetime.
Making a bequest
A Will is a formal record of your wishes and of the way you want your assets distributed. It is a very important and necessary legal document which must be prepared and signed according to strict rules to be effective. You should seek help about this. If you die without making a Will, your estate (your money and property) will be divided between your near relatives in proportions fixed by law, which may not be what you wanted.
If you wish to make a gift of all or part of your estate to a specific organisation like Age Concern Otago this is called a Bequest. This may take the following forms:
- A percentage or financial portion of your estate
- A specific asset(s) such as property or shares
- A cash legacy
