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.

Be inspired by our community fundraisers

Lauren Hollister (second from left) and her family raised money for a new eye clinic in Papua New Guinea.

Geoff Hoar is using his passion for golf as a way to raise money for our sight-restoring work.

Jason Leong spent 17 hours, 9 minutes and 42 seconds completing his second Coast to Coast race. And this year he endured this iconic New Zealand multisport event to raise funds so that 80 people could see.

Lauren Hollister, a student at Kristin College on Auckland's North Shore, walked the Great Walks of New Zealand to raise funds for the first eye clinic in Papua New Guinea's remote province of West New Britain.
