Join the InZone Whānau – become a Friend of InZone

InZone’s capacity to inspire and support  Māori and Pasifika youth to take their place in the cultural, economic and civic leadership of Aotearoa New Zealand, depends on the support the Foundation receives from the wider community.

Donations from our supporters and fundraising make up the shortfall between InZone’s actual costs per student to live in our kāinga and the fees that whānau pay.

Become a Friend of InZone by donating or supporting us in kind, and in return we will acknowledge your donation by:

  • Recognising you as a Friend of InZone by recording your name as a donor on our website.
  • Sending you our InZone pānui (newsletter)
  • Inviting you to our annual Friends of InZone “Thank you” event.

Our Friends of InZone include charities, service and in-kind supports (organisations and people who have donated their products, experience and knowledge to InZone) and donors (individuals, families and businesses who have kindly made a monetary donation).

Boost your gift

Our partnership with TaxGift lets you gift your donation tax credit to InZone which boosts your donation without paying a cent more!

If you are a New Zealand resident who has received taxable income you are entitled to a donation tax credit of 33% for each donation you make. When you join TaxGift and you donate to InZone, the 33% rebate is paid to InZone. To put it simply, for every $100 dollars you donate to InZone; we will receive another $33! That $33 can then receive a further 33% rebate on that until the original $100 becomes $148 at no extra cost to you.

That means when $5,000 is donated to InZone, the extra rebate funds an expert tutoring session for each InZone rangatahi giving them the hand-up that could make all the difference at exam time. And when $10,000 is donated the extra rebate funds a whole weeks worth of healthy breakfasts and lunches for all our rangatahi. TaxGift provides InZone with the cherry on top at no extra cost to you.

Click this link to opt in to TaxGift and gift your donation tax credit to InZone. Fill in a few details, and the experts at TaxGift sort the rest out with Inland Revenue. It’s completely free, and takes less than sixty seconds to complete. Please note that once you have signed up, you will not be able to claim the tax credit on the donations made to InZone for yourself.

You are welcome to contact us at InZone or you can visit Tax Gift’s website for more information. Once signed up, you can opt out of TaxGift at any time by emailing
