HOW YOU CAN HELP DEMENTIA WELLINGTON?

HOW YOU CAN HELP DEMENTIA WELLINGTON?

As a charity, we are always looking for ways to raise money to enable us to continue our work in the Wellington region supporting people and their families who are affected by dementia. The number of referrals to Dementia Wellington keeps rising every year so remaining sustainable is a key focus for us. Dementia Wellington receives approximately 44% of our total income from our local District Health Board contracts, the remainder we must fundraise through grant applications, donations and fundraising.

Our GST number is 127-923-906.

Cheque 

As you will know, most banks in NZ are phasing out cheques in 2021, including Dementia Wellington’s bank, ASB.  This means that from 21 August 2021 if you donate to us by sending us a cheque from any bank, ASB will not be able to process it for us.  As an alternative you can donate via internet banking straight into our account, or by credit card (see above).   You can also arrange with you bank to fill out a form for a one-off Automatic Payment or Direct Debit.  We know that this adjustment is challenging for some of you. Different banks are offering different types of support for this transition, so we suggest you contact your bank for help if you need some assistance.  

Payroll giving

If your employer offers payroll giving, you can donate to Dementia Wellington every month, straight from your pay. Talk to your employer about how to set up your regular donation. If your company uses iPayroll, iPayroll Giving is a voluntary scheme for employees that allows you to make donations directly from your pay to Dementia Wellington and receive immediate tax credits. For every dollar donated you will receive a third back as a tax credit in the same pay period. You can donate as much as you would like and as often as you want by managing your donation through your Employee Kiosk, you can choose to set up a one off donation to Dementia Wellington or set up a recurring donation.

In Memoriam

In memory donations are a very special way of remembering someone who has been important to you.  Many people find it comforting to know the passing of one person's life, while sad, can have a positive impact on the lives of many others.

If you would like to remember someone special in this way, please ask for donations to go to Dementia Wellington at PO Box 39393, Lower Hutt 5045 or to donate online here.

Gifts in Celebration

Do you ever tell your friends "No presents, your presence is gift enough" for a special celebration? Supporting Dementia Wellington at your birthday, wedding, or family christening is a rewarding and thoughtful way to mark your special occasion and help us provide vital services for people living with dementia in your community. If you are planning a get-together, why not ask guests to make a donation in lieu of presents?

Bequests

A bequest is a wonderful way to support the work of Dementia Wellington beyond your lifetime. It’s a gesture of kindness which means a great deal to the people who are affected by Dementia, and ensures our care and support remains assessable and free to all.

Our vision is to inspire people to live well with Dementia and remain active and engaged in their community.

Please consider supporting our vision by leaving a gift to Dementia Wellington in your Will, once you have looked after your family and friends. Your bequest will ensure we can continue our service to people who need our support for many years to come.
