About Seeds of Support Regular Giving Programme
Seeds of Support is a community of supporters who generously make a regular automatic donation to Rotorua Hospice. Monthly donations help us provide free of charge care for anyone living with a life-limiting illness, as well as their friends and whanau.

Joining Seeds of Support is one of the most powerful and effective ways you can support Rotorua Hospice in ensuring everyone with a life-limiting illness receives the specialist care and support they need.  It allows us to plan ahead, budget effectively and fund our nurses, health care assistants and social worker to provide the care our patients need.

And hopefully, it makes it easier for our supporters too – giving regularly by automatic payment from your bank account means being able to contribute a manageable amount at a frequency that suits you. Weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly options are available and no amount is too big or small!

Have you received a phone call from Rotorua Hospice?
We are contacting some of our supporters by phone to thank them personally for their generous support and to tell them more about Seeds of Support. We would love to give you the opportunity to join and we also understand you may donate in other ways already.

Why are we doing telephone fundraising?
As more people are diagnosed with terminal illnesses each year, and demand for our service increases, the need to ask our community for ongoing support increases. We know a regular gift may not work for everyone and we are grateful for however you choose to support Rotorua Community Hospice – thank you!

How do I contact you about a phone call I have received?
If you have any questions or feedback about a phone call you have received please contact:

Fundraising and Marketing Manager
