Give a legacy of hope

A bequest to the Mātai Medical Research Institute is a gift of hope and a meaningful way to make an enduring impact on the health and lives of future generations of New Zealanders. A bequest is a legacy for the future, without impacting on your financial needs during your lifetime.


When writing your Will, we understand that your family should come first. After you have considered the needs of those close to you, you may decide to support a cause that is close to your heart. And perhaps you would like to leave a legacy of hope by contributing to the progress of our world-class medical research at Mātai.


Leaving a bequest to Mātai enables us to secure our research into the future, ensuring that we can sustain our work in perpetuity in areas that have the greatest need.

Bequest for general purposes

If you decide to support Mātai with a gift in your Will, stipulating a bequest for General Purposes enables us to use the funds in the area of greatest need at any given time.


Alternatively, you may be interested in supporting a particular area of our medical research, so you are warmly invited to get in touch with us to discuss this. We can help provide the relevant detail for your solicitor.


Whichever option you choose, we will ensure that your gift will be used as you intended, and that you are acknowledged according to your wishes.


We would be very happy to host you at Mātai and provide you with a tour of our facilities if you would like to see our work in action.


Mātai is a registered charitable trust, undertaking not-for-profit, world-class medical imaging research in Gisborne-Tairāwhiti, New Zealand. Mātai rely on the generosity of our community and our supporters – those who encouragingly share our vision – to ensure we can achieve our aspiring research goals into the future. A gift in your Will is ultimately a legacy of hope for those we know whose lives are affected by devastating health conditions.
