Northland COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund
Northland's COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will assist our most vulnerable communities.Northland
COVID-19 has now reached Northland and we are seeking help to support our most vulnerable communities.
Northland Community Foundation has created the Northland COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund (COVID-19 Fund). Funding will go towards essential health and community services supporting our most vulnerable Northland communities dealing with COVID-19.
Funds will be allocated out via a select Panel involving a representative from Northland District Health Board and Civil Defense among others. Funds will be allocated to and not limited to: services that provide welfare support for elderly that live in rural, isolated communities. Funds will also be given for services that support people that need to go into quarantine but do not have appropriate accommodation or safe accommodation to do so.
All grants are dependent on donations from our community. If just 10% of Northland’s population donated $100 each, the COVID-19 Fund would be able to provide over $1 million in grants for Northland’s essential services dealing with COVID-19. Please give your support today!
Please note: We realise everyone is under immense pressure right now, so I just want to remind you if you donate you can receive a receipt and request 33% tax rebate from the Government. So if you donate $100, $100 will go to the Northland COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund and you can also receive $33 back from the government. Go to the IRD’s website here to get your refund: https://www.ird.govt.nz/income-tax/income-tax-for-individuals
We would greatly appreciate any support that you are able to give during this extremely difficult time. With your support we will be able to support our most vulnerable population in Northland.
The Northland Community Foundation is a charitable Foundation established for Northland, our people and our causes that are important to us.
