Fundraising ideas

You can fundraise online, through an event or at your workplace. Becoming a fundraiser for the Heart Foundation is easy.

We are a charity with more than 65% of our income received through donations.

We rely on people like you to raise vitals funds through your networks and community. Our supporters get involved for many different reasons.

From being personally affected by heart disease, to looking after their own hearts. Everyone is working towards the same goal - raising awareness of New Zealand’s single biggest killer.

Your fundraising will go towards heart health research, cardiac rehabilitation and cardiology training. You can make a real difference to someone’s life so become a hero today.

Heart racers are amazing individuals that take part in a local event while raising vitals funds. We would love for you to join our heart racer team at any of the following events:

Run NZ Run

Auckland Marathon

Wellington Marathon

If you have a cool idea for raising money, then you can create your own online fundraising page with our preferred platform:

Everyday hero is really easy to use and you can track everything that you give! From your voice (social posts and shares), to your effort (the time you spend), to the money you raise…it all counts.

Yes! I want to be a hero
