  • Run Round the Bays and fundraise for Fred

    Join us this March at The Ports of Auckland Round the Bays, an 8.4km course from the Auckland CBD to St Heliers Bay. It’s for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities – sign up today then get fundraising on Everyday Hero to help fundraise for Fred Hollows. Why fundraise? Each and every dollar you raise will go towards our sight-restoring work in the Pacific. When you give someone back their sight, you’re giving them back their life, restoring their independence and dignity. It’s a priceless gift.

  • Schools

    Get involved with The Foundation and increase awareness about blindness in developing countries and remember Kiwi humanitarian Fred Hollows. The Foundation has materials for use in social studies classes or you can restore sight by raising funds for the work we do in Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste, and the Pacific.

  • Donate your tax credit & restore more sight

    Did you know that you can make your donation extend even further? If you've donated to us in the last financial year, you can claim 33.3% of your gifts as a tax credit from the IRD and donate it back to us. Your extra support will help even more needlessly blind people see again. Helping more needlessly blind people see is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Follows these simple steps to donate any or all of your tax credits directly to us:

  • Community fundraising

    There are lots of ways that you or your local community can get involved and help The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ raise funds for our work across the Pacific, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste.

  • In celebration

    Make your special occasion an international cause for celebration by requesting donations instead of gifts! It could be for a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary or even Christmas.

  • In memoriam

    Honour the memory of a loved one by supporting The Foundation's sight-restoring work. Every five seconds another person goes blind, yet 80 per cent of the world's blindness is avoidable. A simple sight-restoring cataract operation takes just 20 minutes and can cost as little as $25.
