In 2022 BNI and their members raised an incredible $331,052 for hospices across Aotearoa. We’re unbelievably grateful for this extraordinary contribution to palliative care.
Since 2007, BNI® New Zealand and Te Kahu Pairuri o Aotearoa – Hospice New Zealand have proudly stood together as national partners, working together to help ensure hospice care remains free of charge for New Zealanders with a life limiting illness.
Our partnership has gone from strength to strength, and over $3 million has now been raised for hospices nationwide thanks to BNI’s generosity and ongoing commitment to the work of Hospice.

Throughout Aotearoa, BNI chapters have a long and dedicated history of raising funds for their local hospices. BNI members visit hospices throughout the year to learn more about their services, and hospice staff visit chapters at weekly meetings. Chapters and hospices work together in many ways – from small-scale fundraising events like a pub quiz, to large events like black tie balls. Because of our long standing relationship, many BNI members have become whānau to hospice staff and volunteers.
Nationally, BNI New Zealand also sponsors the BNI Palliative Care Scholarship Programme, supporting Hospice New Zealand’s commitment to growing leaders in palliative care. Since 2007, BNI New Zealand has donated over $209,000 to fully fund this annual programme.
Every service hospice provides is free, but each year hospices must raise $94 million nationally. We couldn’t do this without support of organisations like BNI.
Thank you BNI!
