Fundraising can be a fun, social and creative way for individuals, businesses and community groups to support their favourite charity. All it takes is a great idea, a passionate team of 'fundraisers', and a little (or a lot!) of effort to get the funds raised.

Whether it's something simple like a bake sale at office mufti day, or more elabroate like a movie night or a charity auction, your support will help make all the difference.

As we are not government funded, each year NZRDA relies on funding form the community to support the delivery of our training programmes to the 56 RDA Groups. So we’re extremely grateful when people like yourselves take the time and effort to help us.

If you're interested in holding a fundraising event in support of NZRDA, then please contact us on (04) 234 6090 or email

We can help you make the event a success and can assist with resources and advertising where possible. Thanks!
