Major donors

Thank you to enlightened supporters who support research-led solutions to enable big research for little lives

New Zealand is fortunate to have world-class and world-leading child health researchers, but many struggle to secure funding to translate their expertise and innovative ideas into new evidence-based preventative interventions, treatments, and cures.

Often compelling and potentially high-impact research cannot be supported, and promising researchers are forced to live overseas due to a lack of funding to support their career development and research aspirations.

Cure Kids’ ability to extend gains across a wider range of conditions affecting children in New Zealand is limited only by funding.

Our donors are remarkable philanthropists who make a huge difference

They let us tackle the hardest issues facing a healthy childhood for everyone and fund the most innovative projects and research studies.

“Cure Kids is a wonderful organisation carrying out world-class work. We were thrilled to enable their 4th University Chair (The Duke Family Cure Kids Chair of Child and Adolescent Mental Health), which meets a significant need to understand and find interventions for our vulnerable youth. We are kept fully informed of progress and innovations in this area and are very respectful of the integrity shown in the Cure Kids governance.”
