Find out what you can do to raise funds to support Kiwis for kiwi.
Working to save kiwi is inspiring, challenging, rewarding and fun.
It also costs money— to find and monitor wild kiwi; to collect and transport eggs; to hatch chicks in safety; for traps and baits; for research; to build a predator-proof fence for a kiwi créche; perhaps to employ a contract trapper; to run workshops to share kiwi conservation skills—the list is long.
Kiwis for kiwi’s number one priority is to raise more money to increase kiwi populations and support on-the-ground kiwi conservation projects. We need help from individuals, communities and corporate sponsors to help achieve that goal.
Take the lead
Helpful online resources abound for anyone inspired to take the lead in fundraising for kiwi. One is the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand —a professional body for fundraisers and organisations involved with New Zealand charities and not-for-profits.
Simple fundraising ideas include:
- School mufti days.
- Organising a kiwi-themed art competition and auctioning off the works.
- Running a quiz evening.
- Running a sponsored sporting event using Everyday Hero
Everyday Hero provides a safe and secure way to raise money for kiwi, and Kiwis for kiwi has set up a dedicated page for donations.
Anyone can create a fundraising page to support kiwi conservation—it’s easy to set up a personalised page and choose Kiwis for kiwi as your charity of choice.
If you tell us about it, we will promote your event through our online newsletter, Kiwi calling.
