Health Fund PLUS

Health Fund PLUS is a partnership between Northland Community Foundation and Te Whatu Ora in Te Tai Tokerau, focusing on raising funds for projects that sit outside the scope of government funding.
Projects such as enhancing healing spaces, developing our workforce, and purchasing additional equipment and services, make all the difference in providing the best quality healthcare possible.
You can choose where your donation goes, and we make sure that is what happens.
The Health Fund PLUS partnership benefits the health needs of all Northlanders by focusing on giving for the good of many.

Health Fund PLUS allows people to make donations and gifts to our Northland hospitals or services for the “optional extras” that are so important to patients and their families. You choose exactly where you want your gift to go, and we make sure that is exactly where it ends up. You can choose one of the services below and click on the link for further information. Or you can get in contact with us if you have a special project you would like to fund.

You can give directly to the Health Fund PLUS fund, so your gift can be used now by the service of your choice, and you receive a 33% tax credit. Fill in our donation form to donate through your bank account, or fill in the form below to make a credit card donation.

If you are interested in creating a health-focused endowment fund, please get in touch. We can invest your gift and deliver the interest from these funds back to the health services you choose, every year, forever!

You can also leave a gift through your Will, of as much or as little as you want. Click here for more information:

Donate to the Jim Carney Cancer and Blood Services Treatment Centre

The Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre was built so that many Northlanders would be able to have treatment in Whangarei, in a state of the art facility, saving the long trip to Auckland and back.

Donations to this fund help to improve the facilities, or provide the “nice to have” things that make a patient’s life more comfortable.

Whangarei Children’s Ward Refurbishment

We know that children who are welcomed and looked after in a caring, calm, supportive environment when they are in hospital are less likely to regress in their health, which makes for a quicker recovery back to good health and less stressful experience for our children (tamariki) and their caregivers.

Emergency Department

Whangarei’s emergency department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing the diagnosis, management and treatment of acute and urgent illnesses and injuries that may be life-threatening and require immediate attention.

Northland Child Health Services

The Child Health Team are based at the Child Health Centre located within Whangarei Hospital Campus. This is a purpose built unit for the assessment of childhood medical, physical and developmental problems. The Child Health Team also run the Whangarei Children’s Ward, and Child Health Clinics at Kaitaia, Dargaville, Bay of Island Hospitals, Kaikohe and Rawene.

Oral Health Service

Northland District Health Board Oral Health Service is a FREE community-based dental service for children under 18 years across the Northland Region.
