Our fundraising commitment

The Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society is proud to be regarded as one of New Zealand's most trusted charities and this is reflected in our fundraising practices:

  • We keep our fundraising expenses well within industry guidelines.
  • We carry out our own fundraising and use volunteers wherever possible to minimise costs.
  • We do not employ fundraising companies or pay commission and do not engage in paid telemarketing or door to door collecting.
  • The donations we receive go towards vital scientific research into the causes and treatment of all types of cancer,  providing a wide range of support services, information, health promotion and education programmes to reduce cancer risk, awareness campaigns and programmes for people affected by cancer.
