Cyclists Every year the Nurse Maude Hospice provides hospice palliative care and support free of charge to patients and their families.

We can do this because of the generosity of the community who contribute to our hospice shops and Maudes on Trade Me, hold fundraising events on our behalf, provide sponsorship and grants and donate money through any of the following.

  • By credit card over the phone – Simply call 375 4200 and ask to speak to our Finance Department.
  • By Cheque. Mail your donation to:
    Nurse Maude
    PO Box 36126
    Christchurch 8146
    Please make cheques payable to Nurse Maude and include your contact details if you wish to receive a receipt.
  • Internet Banking using Nurse Maude's bank account number 02 0865 0057217 03. If you advise us of your donation and provide the reference details, we can provide a receipt.
  • Automatic Payments set up with your bank to provide ongoing regular payments. Print and complete the Automatic Payment form and return to your bank.
  • Donate to our Shops


Leaving a gift to Nurse Maude in your will ensures that your support of our work continues beyond your own lifetime. There are a number of ways you can make such a gift…

  • A financial or asset donation, such as money, property, shares or jewellery.
  • A percentage of your estate.
  • A residual bequest that allows you to leave specific gifts to family and friends, with the remaining part of your estate gifted to Nurse Maude.
  • A specific contingent bequest that comes into effect only if your primary intention cannot be met.  For example; "If (name of primary beneficiary) does not survive me, then I give to Nurse Maude…"
  • Name Nurse Maude as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
  • Establish a charitable trust either during your lifetime or in your Will to support Nurse Maude’s work.
  • Assign income from your investments.

Bequests should specify the Nurse Maude Association, and a suggested wording for a bequest in your Will, or as a codicil to your existing Will, would be:

"I give and bequeath to Nurse Maude the sum of $...(or property, assets or a percentage of my estate as described) for the general purposes (or for a specific purpose) for which the receipt of the Treasurer or other authorized officer shall be a good discharge to my Trustees."

By letting us know about your bequest we are able to thank you.

Memorial and Funeral Donations

Acknowledging Nurse Maude at the funeral of your loved one is as simple as asking the Funeral Director to insert a line in the death notice that says: Donations to Nurse Maude in memory of (name of deceased) may be made at the funeral.

The funeral director will then make the necessary arrangements for that to happen. You’ll receive advice and a receipt from Nurse Maude for those donations and, of course, our heartfelt thanks.
