“The main reason I have been donating since 2017 to Cure Kids is to support the amazing work they do for our children. I have an 8 year old son, and I would like to show him that there is someone like the Cure Kids team doing these great things and that we can help and be a part of that also”
- Sam S, Auckland
“I support Cure Kids because it is just so satisfying to know that I can help find cures for any childhood illness and support mental health research. For us, it’s such a good cause to give to.

Frequently asked questions

How do you decide which research projects to fund?

Cure Kids runs a robust process for assessing and selecting research proposals. All proposals are subject to appraisal by our Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee, comprising eight child health experts across a range of disciplines. Project Grant proposals which make it through the first assessment round are then peer reviewed, the gold-standard in research assessment. These reviewers, both international and local, are generally experts in the specific field, and are critical to providing expert judgement on the proposed research. All assessments, including final scoring, are done anonymously, which helps reduce any conflicts of interest, as well as any bias.

Will I get an automatic Tax Receipt for my donations?

Yes, we will ensure you are emailed or posted your annual tax receipt by the end of April for the previous financial year. Please ensure that we have your latest email or postal address to ensure you receive this.

If you’re making a one-off donation via our website, you will be sent a tax receipt automatically at the time of your donation.

Can I make a donation from overseas?

You definitely can! There are no special steps necessary, simply do so via our donate page. Do note that we only accept Visa and Mastercard.

How do I claim my tax rebate in New Zealand?

If you are a New Zealand taxpayer you can claim up to a third of your donation back at the end of the tax year. In order to do so, you will need to submit the IR526 tax credit claim form along with the donation receipts the following April. You can also do this online at the end of each tax year.

For individuals who donate via payroll giving, you receive immediate tax credits that reduce your PAYE payable, and do not need to wait until the end of year to claim your tax credits.

How do I change my Regular Giving donation amount?
