Unfortunately, Northland Community Foundation is no longer able to accept cheques for donations.
As you may be aware, banks across Aotearoa are no longer accepting cheques from mid-2021. We understand this change may be difficult for you and we’re here to help. We encourage you to speak to your bank about what alternative options will work best for you and we can help you through the process if you choose to donate by credit card or internet banking instead.
