Leaving a gift to The Arts Centre in your will.

Over the years, The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora has been the home of theatre, live performances, music, weddings, graduations, festivals, exhibits and craft. It has enhanced the lives of many. A bequest in your will can help The Arts Centre to continue as an internationally renowned centre for arts, culture and education. It can continue making a difference in the lives you leave behind.



You can help future-proof a unique piece of Christchurch’s history by leaving a gift in your will.  By leaving a percentage of your estate, a sum of money or other assets to The Arts Centre, you’ll be enabling an on-going Arts Centre experience for both visitors and Cantabrians, including your own children, families and friends.

Your gift, regardless of the size, will be gratefully received by The Arts Centre and be put towards a project that most needs funding. The future funding of The Arts Centre is not absolutely guaranteed. You can make a difference. A bequest in your will can help contribute to the future sustainability of The Arts Centre, ensuring that the benefits continue in the future, for your friends and family.

You can help secure The Arts Centre for our children and grandchildren by doing the same.
