Donate to support

Your financial support can make a real, positive difference to people affected by dementia in your community.


Donations and support from the community are vital to the work our organisations do across New Zealand. Your support helps us to provide much needed services in the community, such as day programmes, carer relief, assistance with personal care and many more.

Your support also helps us to raise awareness, reduce stigma and provide a voice for people with dementia as well as providing support directly to those affected by dementia.

Our best estimate shows that around 60,000 kiwis have dementia and that number is expected rise to 154,000 by 2050. Your donation will help us work towards a world without dementia.

You can choose to donate to your local Alzheimers organisation or to Alzheimers NZ.

 a gift to remember

A donation in lieu to your local Alzheimers organisation can be given as a gift in memoriam, in honour and in celebration.

A gift in memoriam:

Making a gift as a tribute to a loved one is valuable and fitting. This is a positive way to celebrate the life of a loved one whilst helping us work towards a world without dementia. You may want to ask for donations to Alzheimers NZ or your local Alzheimers organisation in lieu of flowers at a funeral.

A gift in honour of someone living with dementia:  

You may know someone who has just been diagnosed or is living with dementia. A donation in honour of your loved one or friend is valuable, especially when gestures such as a card or flowers may not be recognised.

A gift in celebration: 

Giving in celebration is a positive way of celebrating a special occasion while supporting the work of the Alzheimers NZ Federation. For example, in lieu of gifts at a wedding, a couple asked for donations to be given to your local Alzheimers organisation and each guest was honoured with a card.

 payroll giving

Providing support through Payroll Giving is one of the valuable ways you can help us with our work. Payroll Giving enables you to donate to us directly from your pay and claim an immediate 33.33% tax credit via PAYE on your donation. For example, if you donate $15, the actual cost to you is $10. Previous to the introduction of Payroll Giving, donors had to save their donation receipts and claim the tax refund back at the end of the tax year.

About payoll giving

  • Payroll Giving is voluntary for both the employer and employee
  • Tax credits are 33.3% of the total donation
  • The PAYE is reduced by the amount of tax credit
  • Only organizations listed on with the Inland Revenue as a Donee Organisation qualify to receive donations via Payroll Giving
  • Employers can only offer the service to employees if they file their EMS (IR348) and EDF (IR345) electronically

Alzheimers NZ is a Donee Organisation and is listed as ALZHEIMERS NEW ZEALAND INCORPORATED on the Inland Revenue's website under Donee Organisations. There you will also find nine of our local organisations under the search ALZHEIMERS SOCIETY.

If you would like to become a Payroll donor for Alzheimers NZ, then please give us a call on 04 387 8264. If you would like to become a Payroll donor for your local Alzheimers organisation, then call 0800 004 001.
