BNI New Zealand raise an incredible $194,969 for hospices across the country.
In 2020, members of BNI came together to raise funds for hospices across New Zealand, through golf tournaments, morning teas, poker nights, auctions, 80’s dance parties, movie nights and more. Due to COVID restrictions events were postponed, cancelled and re-arranged, but BNI New Zealand still managed to raise an incredible $194,969.
We’re unbelievably grateful for this extraordinary contribution to palliative care.
BNI® is New Zealand’s largest referral marketing organisation. Its guiding principle is Givers Gain® – a philosophy that goes beyond networking to make an extraordinary contribution to communities across New Zealand. There are over 120 BNI business groups (known as chapters) throughout the country involving thousands of businesses, and these chapters have a long and dedicated history of raising funds for their local hospices. Since our national partnership was formed in 2007, BNI chapters have raised a phenomenal $2.5 million towards the work of Hospice while also raising invaluable awareness of our services.
Nationally, BNI New Zealand sponsors the BNI Palliative Care Scholarship Programme, with over $197,000 donated to date to fully fund the programme and support Hospice NZ’s commitment to growing leaders in palliative care. BNI New Zealand provides complimentary membership for hospice staff.
Every service hospice provides is free, but each year hospice must raise $77 million nationally. We couldn’t do this without support from organisations like BNI. We are so grateful to BNI and their members for their support of Hospice. Thank you, for helping people live every moment.
