How Your Business Can Support KWANZ

How your business can support KWANZ

Long-term Partnerships, and Charity of the Year

Choosing Kids With Arthritis NZ Charitable Trust as your charity of the year can show a real commitment for helping children and young people as they live with this debilitating condition.  By partnering with us, you can also help raise awareness that ‘even kids get arthritis’. 

We will happily come and talk to you about what we do and why, and give a presentation to your staff.  We may be able to introduce you to a child or young person with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis so you can hear first-hand what life with arthritis is like and how it affects every part of their life.

Staff magazines

If you have newsletters, emails, or magazines that are provided to staff, you could include information about juvenile arthritis.  This will help raise awareness that children and teenagers get arthritis, and encourage your staff to raise funds to support our work.

Customer newsletters, emails and magazines
If you have newsletters, magazines, or emails that you send to customers, you can tell them about your partnership with us and raise awareness of JIA.

Fundraising at work
Fundraising at work is a great way to get staff and colleagues involved in raising funds for KWANZ. There are hundreds of different things that could be done – a cake sale or a bake-off competition. Running, cycling, golf tournament, only your imagination can limit the possibilities!


  • As a business, you can donate to Kids With Arthritis NZ Charitable Trust.
  • Your business may like to have a donation box on your reception desk or on your business counter.
  • Suggest to your staff about Payroll giving to KWANZ and match your employee payroll giving. As a business ‘leading by example’ you can match your employees’ donations dollar for dollar. Through providing a payroll giving scheme and matching your employee’s donations, you are demonstrating your strong corporate social responsibility, whilst showing your commitment to making a different in the lives of children with a chronic illness.

We would proudly display your company logo on our website as a supporter of our work, and include an article in our KWANZ regular newsletter.

Please contact the Kids With Arthritis NZ Secretary to indicate what you would like to help us with.
