Health

We have a special, enduring relationship with Northland DHB. We take care of all their charitable accounts and major fundraising.


In 2015, the Health Fund Plus was set up. The fund allows people to make donations and gifts to our Northland hospitals or services for the “optional extras” that are so important to patients and their families. You choose exactly where you want your gift to go, and we make sure that is exactly where it ends up.

We can hold these funds forever, invest them with Craigs Investment Partners and deliver the interest from these funds back to health services. Named funds are available from $50,000.

You can gift through your Will, it can be as much as you want, all of your estate or 5% to 10%. Get in touch with the Manager, Greta Buchanan, on 021 558 224 to discuss  how to set this up.

You can also gift directly to the Health Fund so your gift can be used now by the service of your choice and you receive a 33% tax credit. Visit our donate page here https://northlandfoundation.org.nz/donate/ to donate by credit card or through your bank account. You will need to choose Health Fund and then write the service you would like to fund in the comments, if not the general fund. The services you can choose to donate to are shown in the table below:

 

We also provide Payroll Giving so get in touch if you would like to set this up.

 

Health Fund Plus – General Fund

The Health Fund Plus – General Fund is available for health services that do not have an existing fund set up, or for general projects that have benefits across Northland’s Health services.

If you do not have a specific service in mind to gift to, or if you would like us to direct your gift to where it is most needed, then this is the fund to choose.

Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre

The Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre was built so that many Northlanders would be able to have treatment in Whangarei, in a state of the art facility, saving the long trip to Auckland and back.

Donations to this fund help to improve the facilities, or provide the “nice to have” things that make a patient’s life more comfortable.

Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal

Over 7,500 children and babies are admitted to one of the four Northland hospitals each year. Funds raised by the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal help Northland DHB Maternal and Child Health Services afford much-needed medical equipment.
