Starship Foundation


Starship is New Zealand’s national children’s hospital. There are nearly 120,000 patient visits to Starship Children’s Health every year by children from all over New Zealand.

The Starship Foundation is a social-profit organisation that raises funds so Starship Children’s Health can better care for these young patients.

The Starship Foundation’s vision is to create meaningful and magical opportunities that enrich the health of every young New Zealander.

Donations are extra to Government funding and provide for initiatives such as Starship’s National Air Ambulance Service which brings children from all over New Zealand to Starship for life-saving care, as well as refurbishing older wards, new technology and medical equipment, vital research, boosted family support, staff training and community outreach projects to keep children out of hospital.

Starship Foundation exists through the generosity of the New Zealand public and leading organisations that lovingly donate money and/or time to assist Starship to remain at the forefront of paediatric care.

“What you are doing is wonderful. Thank you from me and my whanau.”
“Well done Ofa - great cause!”
“Fantastic work mate!!!”
“Awesome stuff.”
“Great stuff Ofa! Go the Blues!”
“Way to go Ofa - very proud of you for doing it for a wonderful charity”
