Ways to get involved
We rely on the generous support of our community who contribute through fundraising, donations and volunteering. Here’s more on how you can help.
Your tax deductible donation will make a real difference in the lives of those living with dementia. The financial contribution you provide play a significant part in ensuring they feel supported and best prepared for that journey.
Give a gift
Imagine knowing that your contribution can help transform the lives not just of someone affected by dementia, but their family, carers and community too.
When you gift financial support to Dementia New Zealand, you’re contributing to the on-going development of a dementia-friendly society, where those affected have guidance, support and importantly, hope for the journey ahead.
There are a number of ways we gratefully accept gifts:
A gift in celebration – Special occasions are a chance for you and your guests to contribute to your community in a positive way. Instead of buying gifts, your guests are requested to make a donation to Dementia New Zealand through a personal celebration page or gift registry.
A gift in memoriam – What greater tribute than to donate in memory of a loved one. There is comfort in knowing that the passing of your loved one can in some way leave a positive legacy that impacts the lives of many. These donations are acknowledged to the family, but the financial contribution remains confidential, and can be made through our website.
Bequests – A gift in your will, no matter how small, is an incredible legacy to leave. Planned giving is a positive way of ensuring your finances or assets help people and causes that matter to you the most. The difference these gifts make cannot be underestimated, and we’re grateful to those who, in their own passing, help to ensure that others may continue to experience the help and guidance they need to live their life with comfort and support.
In New Zealand, one in five people’s lives are affected by dementia. Be it a grandparent, a parent, a spouse, a friend or themselves. That means it’s likely a cause close to the hearts of your employees, your customers and your corporate networks. Your business can show support for Dementia New Zealand in several ways while also demonstrating the values and community-minded ethos behind your brand. Together, we can raise awareness and ensure that our communities have the support and guidance they need.
A strategic partnership with Dementia New Zealand is a positive way to connect your community values with our objectives. We’ll take the time to understand what’s important to you, and how our organisation can provide reciprocal support in helping your business achieve its community goals. By engaging your customers and workforce in activities that positively contribute to their community, you create opportunities that motivate your staff, build a strong company culture, demonstrate your desire to act as a socially responsible organisation, and enhance your brand through positive PR and engaging fundraising activities.
Get your brand behind a well-respected charity that your corporate community will feel proud to support.
Sponsoring a Dementia New Zealand event, initiative or project will align your company ethos with an organisation that is making a positive difference in your community. For us, sponsorship isn’t just about making an open-handed donation. It’s about sharing resources, skills and ideas for the mutual benefit of all. We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities, with the potential to provide visibility, audience engagement and positive brand exposure for your business.
