A Gift Account enables you to consolidate all your giving in one place, with many added benefits:

 
 

Simple set-up

Open an account in a matter of hours. Get started with a donation starting from $5,000.


Tax-smart

All your contributions to your Gift Account are eligible for tax credits. And, even if you give to multiple charities over the year, you’ll only have one tax receipt to keep track of — the one you get from us. 


 

Donor-focused

We're flexible and offer support to help guide you in developing a personal, family or business giving plan.


 

Minimal Administration

We take care of all the ongoing regulation and compliance requirements under our charitable status, which creates economies of scale.  As a charitable trust, we are committed to ensuring we operate effectively.


Privacy 

Using a gift account allows you to make donations anonymously and maintain privacy, or elect to have your grants made in your own name - you decide.


Leave a legacy

Extend your philanthropy beyond your lifetime. Name your account to include your family (e.g., "The Jones Family Fund") and nominate family members as successors to the account.


Versatile

We're open to hearing what you want to achieve, and can work with you to tailor a service that best fits your needs. 


Support

We do basic due diligence on any grant recommendations. For grants over $5,000 we also request reports from recipients on the impact of this gift and will share this with you in your personal annual report. 


National reach

Our focus is on helping our donors support the causes that align with their values. Grants can be made to any New Zealand charitable trust.


Innovation

We are keen to help you explore different models of giving - including community consultation and participatory grant-making. Additional philanthropic advice is available to support you to try something different.
