The Impact of Regular Giving

$10 each month could fund one grief counselling session for someone dealing with the heartbreaking loss of a loved one. 

$15 each month could fund three weeks of petrol, helping us care for and support our patients in their own homes. 

$25 each month could fund the nursing supplies we need to care for three patients facing their end of life journey. 

$50 each month could fund eight days of medical loan equipment, helping people remain comfortable in their own homes. 

Why regular donations are so important:

  • Having regular donations from our generous regular givers helps Waipuna Hospice plan for the future, ensuring that we are here to help people in our community when they need us the most.
  • Regular donations reduce administration work attached to our income, making them more efficient donations.
  • Your regular donation will go straight towards supporting those facing their final journey. It will also help ensure we are there to care for the families, whānau and friends that are left behind.
  • It also means you will remain close to the work we do and your unique impact. Our regular givers receive more targeted communications and therefore have a clearer idea of our long-term work and strategy and the invaluable part you play.
  • It’s easy! Once you have signed up you don’t have to do anything else. Your regular donations do all the work for you, directly supporting the work of Waipuna Hospice.

As a Waipuna Hospice GEM, you will hear first-hand from us about the impact your donation is having right here in your local community.
