In 2024, we have already supported 113 endorsed community charities across Aotearoa. These are the charities who are visible in communities. The ones you can walk in to and ask for help with things like food parcels, support dealing with government departments, parenting advice and support, and upskilling. They are also the charities you go to if you need some general companionship and support.

This support is possible because ordinary New Zealanders regularly contribute a small, tax-deductible amount to our donation pool, which is distributed annually.
