There are lots of different ways to get involved and do more for Kiwi kids. Your generous support will help transform lives and enable brighter futures for the children of Aotearoa New Zealand.



Making a donation to Barnardos is the best way to give vulnerable children the help they need. Your donation will have an immediate impact for a child experience problems like isolation, bullying, neglect, and physical or emotional abuse. Problems thousands of New Zealand children live with every day.

If you're an existing Barnardos donor, you can make a deposit direct to our account (Barnardos NZ, 06-0501-0509606-02) using your donor number as a reference.



If you're looking for a fun and rewarding way to give back to your community, fundraising is where it's at. Are you running a marathon, holding a quiz night, hosting a morning tea or organising a special event? Whatever you're doing, the funds you raise will help improve the lives of Kiwi kids.

You can set up a fundraising page on everydayhero or givealittle.

Leave a legacy

A legacy is a gift specified in your Last Will and Testament (your will). It instructs your executor to send a portion of your estate to us as a final charitable gift in your name. Every amount gifted, regardless of size, will make a real difference to the life of a child in New Zealand.

To have a legacy gift specified in your will, speak to your solicitor.


Don't have a will?

If you don't have a will, a solicitor or a trustee company can help you write one.
