Donating funds is the best way to make an impact through our work. This could support specific projects or programmes, or it could go to where the need is greatest. Donations may be eligible for tax deductions. We also offer sponsorship opportunities to allow organisations to support local and national Red Cross projects, programmes and events.
Giving products and services can make a huge and direct impact, as well as providing great promotion opportunities. We run several programmes needing donations of goods and services to deliver an impact in the community.
Products and services donations could be for:
A customer fundraiser—which donates a margin of sales or allows people to donate when they shop—gives people an extra incentive to spend with your organisation. It’s a great way to promote your positive impact while boosting sales and customer engagement.
Enhance the health, safety and wellbeing of your workplace while also helping support vulnerable people in communities across New Zealand and overseas.
Invest in first aid or mental health and wellbeing courses to develop your team’s practical skills and resilience.

Every week generous Kiwis support us by donating automatically through their pay. It’s one of the easiest ways to support our work. Making a small donation each week makes a big difference over time.
As an employer, you have the option to match payroll giving donations, making it easy to double the donation and the impact it makes.
We have several fundraising opportunities to inspire and motivate your workplace to give, like Red Cross Journey and the annual Red Cross Appeal.
Or come up with your own workplace fundraiser – we can provide a collection box or a digital fundraising platform to share with your supporters. Let us know if you have funds to pass through from your workplace collections. Email email@example.com.
Volunteers make our work possible. Many of the 10,000+ Kiwis who volunteer for New Zealand Red Cross are trained for specific programmes and make an incredible difference for people in need. Volunteering includes:
These volunteering opportunities are some of the most fulfilling and rewarding around.
We also offer occasional volunteer opportunities throughout the year for charity events.
