Gift a Day of Care

Your gift could be someone's most precious day

Your gift could be the most precious day for a hospice patient and their loved ones.  It could be the last day ever that they hold hands, hug, talk or say goodbye.  These are special moments for all and create treasured memories within a family/whānau that will last for lifetimes.



Every Day Counts

At the heart of North Haven Hospice is compassion, care and aroha.  This underpins who we are and what we do to help make every day count for our patients and their loved ones.  

Hospice is about enabling quality of life and 'Living Every Moment'.  To help, we get to know people in our care as individuals, during what can be a difficult and sad time.  We focus on the special things that bring strength, peace, joy, comfort and dignity.

Who can Gift a Day of Care?

Any individual person, couple, family, community group, service club, organisation or business can Gift a Day of Care.

For your staff or team, it can provide an opportunity to fundraise for a local charity providing an essential health service for people in your community.  

Whatever your reason for gifting a Day of Care, we are very grateful for your support.

Commemorate a special date

In addition to supporting the specialist care of a North Haven Hospice patient and their family/whānau, you can choose the date of your gifted day of care to commemorate the memory of one of your relatives or friends; or to recognise an important birthday or anniversary; or to mark a significant milestone for your business/organisation.

Your gift acknowledged

In recognition of your generosity we'll give you a printed personalised Gift a Day of Care Certificate of Support.

With your permission, we will acknowledge your gift on our website, our social media pages, in our next North Haven News (3000+ circulation) and in our next Annual Report.

And, we'll invite you to visit and tour our premises at Tikipunga, meet some of the team and enjoy a coffee or tea with us.

Why does North Haven Hospice need to fundraise?

Whilst we do receive some Government funding via Northland District Health Board, the gap between that funding and the actual cost to provide the specialist care and support that we give is $1.9 million for the 2020/21 year. This is what we need to fundraise, which works out to over $36,500 every week!

Every dollar raised here, stays here; supporting what is an essential health service for local people facing the end of life and during bereavement.
