A great option is to set up an online fundraising event using GoFundraise – this way, you can share your initiative with your email and social media contacts and really amp up donations! To get started, click the button below…
Host a RASNZ Speaker
Are you a teacher whose students are interested in learning about the refugee journey?
Is your workplace keen to fundraise for a cause that supports refugees resettling in New Zealand?
If so, why not host a RASNZ speaker at your next assembly, class discussion, or work function? In the past, RASNZ speakers have visited schools, Rotary clubs, businesses and faith groups. Talks can range from 5-minute “pep talks” in preparation for a fundraiser, right up to hour-long activities or in-dept discussion sessions for schools.
To find out more and book your RASNZ speaker, please contact the Fundraising Team.
Donate Goods or Services
RASNZ works specifically within the area of refugee mental health and wellbeing. We do not accept donations on behalf of clients and in instances where families do require material items and aren’t able to afford them, we support them in accessing specialised services such as the Auckland City Mission and St Vincent de Paul.
However, we do graciously accept donations of high-quality new and used items that can be utilised within our work. Such items can include: Art supplies, sports equipment and games for our RASNZ Youth service, fabric and sewing materials for our women’s groups, laptops, digital cameras and even vehicles!
If you would like to donate an item to be used within our work, or are keen to explore the possibility of donating a professional service, please contact the fundraising team.
Recycle Your Bike
Your old bike could make a world of difference to a refugee family. Not only is it a cheap way of getting around, it encourages independence and opens up new opportunities.
RASNZ works with the Earth Action Trust to provide bikes for refugee families, and the Roskill Bike Kitchen kindly repairs any donated bikes for us. If you have a bike you no longer need, contact the wonderful Bike Kitchen team here.
