A Living Inheritance

Bobby was young but he was passionate about the sea, marine life, art, technology, inventing and making things. He also liked to help people.

He was a very capable young man who had his life ahead of him when he was so tragically killed in a car accident at 16 years of age in 2001. Some time has passed since Bobby died and the family have decided that the formation of a charitable trust would in a sense be a living document to Bobby and in essence be an extension of what if he had lived.

Accordingly, the Family decided to create a "living inheritance".

The Bobby Stafford-Bush Foundation was formed in Auckland in 2013 and is a registered Charitable Trust donations for which, qualify for a tax rebate. It also has Donee Status.
