Wings | Spread your Wings With a Regular Gift
True Colours Children’s Health Trust is a 100% community funded organisation. It is only through the generosity of people and organisations in the community that we can do the work we do.
Wings is our regular gifting programme, enabling you to donate to our organisation each month.
Your regular donations are vital in helping the care to continue for children living with a serious or life threatening illness and their families.
Every dollar really does help us here at True Colours, and the more support we receive the more we can offer children and families living with the challenges a serious or life-threatening illness creates every day.
True Colours is a registered charity so all donations over $5 are tax deductible. A full tax donation receipt will be mailed out at the end of each financial year.
Corporate Partnership | Shining Together
By supporting True Colours your company is guaranteed to make a difference to families throughout the Waikato for children with serious illness.
Working together, we can provide you with a mutually beneficial partnership that will be enhanced through the alignment of compatible brand values a desire to work together to achieve mutual goals.

Payroll | Give a Little Each Pay
Setting up a regular donation through Payroll Giving allows your donation to True Colours to be processed each time you are paid by your employer and provides you with an instant tax rebate for your donation.
Instead of waiting until the end of the year to claim your tax credit, all donations over $5 qualify for an immediate 33.33% tax rebate each payday.
Payroll Giving is administered through the online PAYE tax system, so you will need to check if your employer is set up for this. Link to payroll info

Get Involved | Your Gift Makes A Difference

It could be participating in the annual ‘Tough Guy & Gal Challenge’ (if you don’t mind the mud); or asking friends and workmates to sponsor you in running ‘The Goat’ (Whakapapa to Turoa ski fields).
