Real Stories, Real Solutions

Welcome to The Kiwis For Good Foundation - Where We Strive to Make a Difference!

Who We Are

We are a registered charity dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of New Zealanders. Our mission is to address some of the most pressing issues facing our society today. Founded on the principles of compassion and community, The Kiwis For Good Foundation is committed to three core functions:

  • Raising Awareness of Mental Health Through Multimedia: We believe that awareness is the first step towards change. Through various multimedia initiatives, we aim to break the stigma surrounding mental health and foster open, honest conversations about well-being.
  • Providing Debt Relief Advice: Financial stress can take a toll on mental health. We offer guidance and support to individuals facing debt-related challenges, helping them regain control of their financial well-being.
  • Preventing Youth Suicide: New Zealand's youth are our future, and their well-being is our priority. We offer free counselling services to 13-25-year-olds across the country to provide a lifeline for those who may be struggling. This crucial service is made possible through our partnership with the reputable company Betterhelp.

 Our Impact

Since our inception, The Kiwis For Good Foundation has made significant strides in creating positive change. Our commitment to raising awareness, offering financial guidance, and preventing youth suicide has touched countless lives. Together, we've worked towards building a happier, healthier, and more resilient New Zealand.

Powered by Our In-House Fundraising Team

Behind every success story, there's a dedicated team working tirelessly. We owe our ability to make a difference to our incredible in-house fundraising team, led by our dynamic CEO. Yes, you read that right – our CEO is not your average executive. In fact, not many CEOs roll up their sleeves and hit the streets to fundraise every day! We like to think of our CEO as the "Fundraising Maestro" who leads by example and inspires us all.
