Join us on our mission to end melanoma in New Zealand

Donations are a vital source of support to our organisation. As we do not receive government funding, your donation will help fund life-saving prevention and early detection programmes across the country. We also support melanoma patients and their families through our one-to-one support service from our Nurse Educators, provide information booklets and fund melanoma research. With your help, we can save more lives and support more New Zealanders affected by melanoma.

There are many ways you can donate Melanoma New Zealand:

  • Donate via credit card online (you will be receipted immediately via email);
  • Become a regular donor;
  • Donate in-memory;
  • Direct deposit – online banking;
  • Phone Melanoma New Zealand’s office on 0800 463 526.

If you would like your donation to be tagged to a specific initiative (eg the Melanoma Research Fund), please ensure you contact our office in advance to advise, or include a reference with your donation that indicates this.

Go through your usual banking provider to set up Melanoma New Zealand as a regular payee (using Melanoma New Zealand’s bank account above) or for regular donations via your credit card, call us on 0800 463 526 or contact us the form above and select the ‘donation frequency option’.

      Leave a gift in your will

      Making a bequest to Melanoma New Zealand in your will is a wonderful way to support our long-term mission. Many of the support services and research advances we benefit from today have been funded through the generosity of those who have gone before. Our legal constitution assures you that the money must be appropriately spent.

      There are several types of bequest:

      • You can leave a specific bequest, such as a sum of money, land, or shares.
      • You can instruct your executors to sell your assets and allocate the proceeds in proportions.
      • You can leave the balance (residue) of your estate to Melanoma New Zealand after legacies to family and funeral and administration costs have been paid.

      If you require any more information about making a bequest, please email our Chief Executive – or phone 09 449 2342.

        Payroll Giving

        Payroll giving allows you to make regular donations from each pay to a charity of your choice. Regular donations are vital to Melanoma New Zealand. They allow us to plan ahead, ensuring that we can educate and support Kiwis on the importance of prevention and early detection.

        If your organisation would like to find out more about setting up payroll giving for its employees, please visit the IRD website.


          Melanoma New Zealand has partnered with Supergenerous, making it easier for generous New Zealanders to supercharge their donations.

          Most donations in New Zealand are eligible for a 33% donation rebate from Inland Revenue (IRD), a whopping 3 in 5 New Zealanders simply don’t do it.

          In under 5 minutes, you can join thousands of Kiwis who have signed up for Supergenerous. Their online platform makes it easy to claim and re-gift your donation rebates. And, Supergenerous does all the hard work by collecting all of your donation receipts (even school donations!) and making the claim with Inland Revenue on your behalf, year after year.

            I had surgery last year to remove the melanoma and am shortly to have a second surgery as there were a few cancer cells close to the margins.  However, I’ve been told my cancer has been caught early and my chances of making a full recovery are excellent.
