Help others be Super Warm this winter.

Some of us are fortunate to be living in warm, well-insulated homes during the winter months.

We can afford to switch on a heater, buy wood for the fire, and keep ourselves and our loved ones warm and dry.

Sadly this is not the case for many others.

Children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable, and each winter approximately 1,600 deaths in New Zealand are attributed to damp, cold houses. 

The Winter Energy Payment was introduced by the NZ Government to help older people stay warm and healthy during the colder months.

This year those receiving NZ Super will receive an additional $450 for a single person, or $700 for a couple, from 1 May 2019.

If you can afford to, we can help you to get this small bonus to someone in Auckland who needs help staying warm this winter.

 

Gifting your Winter Energy Payment is simple.

You can make a donation online by choosing the
Super Warm Fund.

Or, if you prefer to make a bank transfer, you will find our account details further down this page.

You can also call us on (09) 366 1523 or send us an email at info@aucklandfoundation.org.nz.

And if you're a bit too young to be getting your NZ Super, you can still make a donation and we'll direct your generosity straight to where it will have an impact.

 

How will your donation help?

All donations to the Super Warm Fund will be granted by Auckland Foundation to community organisations who are working with the most vulnerable: the very young, the elderly and the homeless. 

This includes activity such as distributing blankets, providing clothing and sleeping sacks for the homeless, or providing a warm space for the elderly.
