How Can I Help or Donate

Hospice palliative care is free to our patients, however our services are far from cost free.

We expect to provide palliative care to over 650 people this year and support thousands more of their family and whanau. Although we receive core government funding we still need to secure another $5m dollars this year (2022/23) to cover the costs of providing our services at no charge.

The $5m is dependent on the generosity of the Taranaki community for; Grants, donations, fundraising events and our HospiceShops for support.

All financial contributions are an investment in our future and help us to ensure we are able to continue to provide our specialist hospice care and support to all who need us regardless of their financial situation.

As Hospice Taranaki is a registered charity, all monetary donations over $5.00 are eligible for a tax rebate and we will provide you with a receipt for this.
