There are many ways to donate or fundraise for us, and we value them all. Big or small, every bit helps to pay the operating costs of our emergency and community services and keep New Zealanders living healthier, happier and longer lives.

Where does my money go? 

Give to remember someone special 

If someone close to you passes away, rather than people sending flowers for their funeral you might like to suggest a donation to us instead. You can also mark the anniversary of someone’s passing by making an In Memory donation, which can be a wonderful way to honour a loved one. In Memory donations can be made at other times too, such as for a special anniversary that means a lot to you.

Leave a gift in your will 

Leaving a gift in your will (a bequest) is an act of kindness that will create a living legacy for present and future generations A gift like this, no matter how big or small, is a beautiful way to be remembered and can make a real difference in your community 


Payroll giving 

One easy way to donate to us is to have a regular amount taken out of your pay before it goes into your bank account. It keeps things simple, and you’ll also receive an immediate tax rebate if your donation is for $5 or more.

Other ways to give  

Give a much-needed item 

You might like to donate money for specific items or medical equipment. We'd love to help you to select an appropriate gift. Please give us a call on 0800 STJOHN or get in touch via email and we can talk to you about some options. 

Give items we could sell 

If you have items that you don’t need anymore, we’d be happy to have them. We can sell them on and use the proceeds to help run our services. Please drop off your donations at your nearest Hato Hone St John Retail Store. 

Donate a service 

If you have a special skill we could use, that can be a big help to us, too. Pro bono arrangements help keep our costs down, so that more money can go towards maintaining our emergency and community services.
