There are so many ways you can make a difference. Find a way that suits you to help heart families across New Zealand

Heart Kids is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of families with one or more child living with a heart condition, and we receive no government funding. We rely solely on the generous support from our wonderful community and supporters to provide the services we do for heart families.

Donate

12 kiwi kids are born every week with broken hearts. Their journey into adulthood and beyond brings many challenges for them and their whānau. Your kind donation - whether it is a one-off or regular donation - will help make a positive difference in their lives, and the lives of their whānau. On their behalf, thank you!

Payroll giving

Not only is payroll giving a painless way to donate to Heart Kids (it comes straight from your gross pay), you will also receive a tax credit instantly. You can set the amount you want to donate to Heart Kids and this can be organised through your employer who will ensure it comes out of your pay. For more information, please contact us and we will walk you through the process.

Leave a lasting gift

A gift left to Heart Kids in your will is one of the most generous and lasting ways you can make a positive difference to those who live with a childhood heart condition. Making a will is something that needs a lot of consideration and discussion with loved ones. We understand how important this is and are here to talk to you in confidence about the process. Please contact us for more information.
