Northland COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

Northland Community Foundation has created the Northland COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund (Northland COVID-19 Fund). Funding will go towards essential services supporting our most vulnerable Northland communities dealing with COVID-19.

Received funds will be allocated via recommendations from a select Panel including the Northland District Health Board, Civil Defence and others. Funding will be prioritised for (but not limited to) services that provide welfare support for the elderly, kuia, kaumatua that live in rural, isolated communities. Funds will also be allocated for services that support vulnerable people that need to go into quarantine but do not have appropriate accommodation or safe accommodation to do so. Please note, if a donor has a different purpose they would like their donation to go towards please get in touch with us. 

All grants are dependent on donations from our community. If just 10 percent of Northland’s population donated $100 each, the COVID-19 Fund would be able to provide over $1 million in funds for Northland’s most vulnerable communities.

We realise everyone is under immense pressure right now, so we just want to remind you that you can receive a receipt and request 33 percent tax rebate from the Government for your donation. That means, if you donate $100,  $100 will go to the Northland COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund and you can also receive $33 back from the government. Go to the IRD’s website here to get your refund:

We would greatly appreciate any support that you are able to give during this extremely difficult time. With your donation we will be able to support our most vulnerable population in Northland.
