As a registered charity, there are many ways to support the Foundation, whether you are a parent, business partner or interested supporter in our community, all contributions are greatly received no matter the size or shape.
INDIVIDUALS, PARENTS & FAMILIES
Donations of any size are warmly welcomed. An easy and effective way is to simply make a gift, large or small, one-off or regular.
SPONSORSHIP OF SCHOOL RELATED EXPENSES
Many students are supported through the Awhi Fund, for school related expenses that they might not otherwise be able to afford. You may choose to donate the equivalent of these expenses to ensure student's participation in school-related activities or accessing resources is not constrained.

HOW TO MAKE A DONATION
If you would like to make a financial donation, you can do so in one of the following ways:
Leaving a gift in your will – a bequest – is a popular way to give. Consider giving a % of your estate or a specified sum. Bequests come in all sizes and forms and we welcome assets other than money.
ATTENDING OUR EVENTS
A large proportion of the ticket price and registration fees for our events go directly to the Foundation. By purchasing a ticket or participating in an event, you are also contributing to our fundraising efforts.
Some of our fundraising events require a huge amount of time and organisation. Sometimes, offering to manage one aspect of an event or helping with facilitation on the day is a valuable help.
