Make Your Giving Go Even Further

With the Starship Foundation and TaxGift, you can make your generosity go further and have an even bigger impact to bring better health and brighter futures for our children.

You can make a 'bonus' donation to Starship without a cent more coming out of your bank account.

And it only takes 60 seconds.

By opting in to TaxGift, the experts at TaxGift will claim the tax credits on all of your eligible donations to Starship from the current tax year and going forward and donates them back to Starship on your behalf. Your donations continue giving throughout the years, amplifying your gift by over 40% over time. That's a powerful gift!

It costs nothing to sign up and takes less than a minute. All you will need is your IRD number handy.

If you are a New Zealand resident who has received taxable income (including pension) in the current financial year, then you are entitled to a 33% rebate on each donation that you've made to the Starship Foundation.

Think about that for a second. For every $100 you donate to Starship, you will give another $33. What’s more, this $33 is considered a further gift of money meaning that $11 is claimable the following year and so on: after three years, your $100 donation could be worth up to $148!

It mightn't sound like a lot by itself, but it could make a huge difference.

That's money that could help keep our National Air Ambulance flying, contribute towards our Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) upgrade, or help us buy a state-of-the-art breathing system for premature newborns.

To be clear: your donation gives again, and no money leaves your bank account. Best of all, your tax gift will help provide equipment, staff training and specialist care for Starship Children.

Simply click on the link below, fill in a few details, and the experts at TaxGift sort the rest out with IRD. It's completely free and takes less than a minute to do.

So please take a minute to click on the link above now and help your gift keep giving to critically ill children.
