Giving To Benefit Us All, Now And In The Future
Northland Foundation works with the whole community to inspire generosity for Northland. Northland DHB has a special relationship with Northland Foundation. Northland DHB and Northland Foundation work together, raising donations and endowments to get the ‘optional extras’ or top-of-the-range equipment or services for the DHB that can make all the difference in providing the best quality healthcare possible. It is never an alternative to Government funding.
Anyone Can Help – And Every Little Helps
One of the special programmes that Northland Foundation coordinates annually is the Countdown Kids Appeal. Last year Northlanders raised nearly $90,000 through donations at Countdown supermarkets. With the money raised, Child Health has bought all kinds of extra equipment especially designed for children.
Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre
For several years Northland Foundation focused on completing the huge task of working with the community to raise $3million through the ‘Project Promise’ appeal to build the Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre for Northland. This goal was achieved through the wonderful support of individuals, families, service groups, businesses and organisations. The Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre opened in November 2014. It’s not too late to give. A donation to the Cancer Treatment Centre, or any other part of Northland DHB’s health service could be your way to say ‘thank you’.

The I Have a Dream Charitable Trust’s mission is to inspire and enable children from low-decile schools to reach their full potential, by promoting from an early age, values of higher education, career engagement and life success. To achieve this I Have a Dream establish long-term wraparound academic, health and social services, building partnerships between their schools, families and the community to ensure every child has the resources and networks they need to succeed. Full-time Navigators follow each year-level of children from early primary, through secondary and into tertiary education to provide mentoring, academic oversight, advocacy and support. Navigators have a formal relationship with the participating schools, work alongside the children’s families, and help coordinate community services. I Have a Dream’s launch of the Ngātahi Education Initiative (Ngātahi means together, in unison, as one) to the four schools in the Tikipunga/Otangarei communities in Whangarei will inspire the dreams and enable the futures of 1,500 children growing up in material hardship. www.ihaveadream.org.nz
