There are so many ways you can get involved and help us provide support to young Kiwis going through some of life’s toughest times. Whether you’re an individual, school or work team looking for fundraising ideas or want to support us regularly, you’ll find everything you need here.

Why Kenzie’s Gift

Kenzie’s Gift is Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading charity dedicated to helping young Kiwis and their whānau affected by serious illness or grief. Our vision is to ensure no young Kiwi faces serious illness or grief alone.


We do this by providing 1-on-1 therapy with registered mental health professionals, grief kits and extensive online resources. The right support at the right time is life-changing and every cent that’s raised helps us provide this.

Gift upon a Star


Our community supporters are true heroes, spreading the word about Kenzie’s Gift and raising vital funds to help us reach more tamariki and their whānau who desperately need our help.

  • Get active with any type of run / walk / swim / adventure challenge and get friends and family to sponsor your sweat!
  • Host the most with a delicious bake sale, morning tea, dinner or whatever goodies you’re great at whipping up.
  • Face your fear for the best cause. Tackle whatever you’re afraid of and raise valuable funds in the process.
  • Shave for Kenzie. Temporarily wave goodbye to your locks, have your head and change a young Kiwi’s life. 
  • Do your own thing by fundraising your way.


Have so much fun with your kura (school) you won’t realise you’re fundraising! Try our flagship kura fundraising campaign – Superhero Fridays. It’s fun and simple to do:

  • Nominate a Paraire (Friday) to be a Superhero Paraire and promote it throughout the kura so everyone knows it’s coming.
  • Ask everyone – staff, teachers, pupils, even parents and pets who might be popping in – to dress up as a superhero. Let your imaginations (and capes) fly - expensive costumes aren’t necessary.
  • Leave donation buckets around for gold coin donations for everyone who dresses up.
  • Try some of our Superhero Fridays activity ideas, from fancy dress competitions to a superhero breakfast: take a look.

Reach out to the team if you want more ideas or free resources to make your Superhero Paraire a success.
