Support Kidney Health New Zealand

Your donation will help Kidney Health NZ to continue to provide support and to advocate for kidney patients and their families/whānau.

We provide support in a number of ways:

  • through our 0800 KIDNEY helpline
  • regional support groups
  • social media groups
  • education for health professionals on how to best manage kidney disease
  • kidney health screening and education at community events
  • advocacy at a national level
  • support for research into kidney disease

Through early detection of kidney disease, education and support, the aim is to slow the rate of progression of kidney disease, and to improve health outcomes for people living with kidney disease. Early diagnosis, support, and good medical management is the gift of time. Your donation will help someone to live longer and stay healthier for longer.

Kidney Health New Zealand does not receive any Government support. We rely on funding grants, donations and bequests to fund our work, and are grateful for the generous support of donors, sponsors and funders who help us to help others achieve better kidney health.

There are several ways that you could support our organisation, besides donation. Being a kidney health advocate, supporting local fundraising activities, or perhaps organising a workplace fundraising event or challenge.

Corporate social responsibility

Looking to fulfill your corporate social responsibility goals?  A partnership with KHNZ could be the answer! Kidney disease affects over 400,000 New Zealanders. Yet as little as 1 in 10 people know they have it.

One of Kidney Health NZ’s goals is to help reduce health inequities. Through providing kidney health screening in at-risk populations, we increase opportunities for improved health outcomes through early diagnosis, education, and effective management of chronic kidney disease. With one in ten people having some form of kidney disease, there will be friends, family, neighbours, employees, customers, and community stakeholders that may have kidney disease. We invite you to partner with us in our journey towards better kidney health for all New Zealanders
