Generous friends of the Trust have supported our work in different ways - by organising an art exhibition, screening a film to raise funds, putting together an auction or raising sponsorship for achieving something mighty like walking 650ks! Here are some of the wonderful ways people have raised money for us in the past… perhaps there is a way you could help us too?


Organise an Auction

We were over the moon when a group of business people, who met on a course run by the The University of Auckland Business School and The Icehouse pooled their resources to auction items that raised a remarkable $24,500 to support us.


Put on an Art Sale

Our wonderful friends at Art for Change organised an art show where many very talented & generous artists donated their work to raise funds to help reunite the families of those who have arrived here as refugees


Take up a Collection

Maggie, aged 8, helped her grandma count the small change she’d collected in a jar that she chose to donate to the Trust. Any time you ask people to donate to the Trust you can literally help change lives!


Create Something Beautiful

The first person the Trust supported to bring family members here is a master calligrapher. When Ali had his first solo exhibition we collected funds to help reunite other families. Thank you, Ali!

Arrange an Event

Our friends at Art for Change put on a terrific event as part of their exhibition Where Shall We Call Home? The extraordinary Rez Gardi, former refugee, New Zealand’s first female lawyer of Kurdish descent and Young New Zealander of the Year, spoke as part of a celebration of World Refugee Day.


Ask people to sponsor you

Our wonderful Trustee, Sue Elliott, is walking 650 kilometres to celebrate her 65th birthday & raise money to bring families back together. Perhaps you could take on a challenge, too?
