Health Fund PLUS

We have a special, enduring relationship with Northland District Health Board. We take care of all their charitable accounts and major fundraising.


In 2015, the Health Fund PLUS was set up. The fund 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 gift directly to the Health Fund PLUS so your gift can be used now by the service of your choice and you receive a 33% tax credit. Visit our donate page here https://northlandcommunityfoundation.org.nz/donate/ to donate by credit card or through your bank account. You will need to choose Health Fund PLUS and then write the service you would like to fund in the comments, if not the general fund.

Or we can invest your gift and deliver the interest from these funds back to health services every year, forever!

You can also gift through your Will, and it can be as much or as little as you want, for example 5% to 10%. See our Legal Resources page here for more information: https://northlandcommunityfoundation.org.nz/resources/legal-resources/

Get in touch with us to discuss either of these options here: https://northlandcommunityfoundation.org.nz/contact/

The services you can choose to donate to are shown in the table below. Or you can click on one of the below links for further information:

Child Health Fund

The Child Health Team are based at The Child Health Centre located within Whangarei Hospital Campus.

The Child Health Team also run Child Health clinics at Kaitaia, Dargaville and Bay of Island Hospitals, and in Kaikohe and Rawene.

Jim Carney Cancer 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.
