Ways to Donate

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrint

Youthline needs donations from New Zealanders to help fund the many programmes, services and resources we provide to young New Zealanders and their families.


Youthline makes more than 300,000 people contacts each year through phone, txt, online, events and face-to-face services. We need money to fund nationally accessible services such as the 0800 Youth Help Line and Free TXT service.


Youthline has an established donor base that has enabled Youthline to support young people and their families since 1970. However the need for more donors is always present in order to provide free or low user cost programmes, services and resources.


Youthline has a number of ways for donations including regular mailout campaigns but this is an expensive process. Since 2007 we have been able to make available online donations which also includes an online shop. We have a small team dedicated to maintaining and building our base of donors through a variety of methods outlined below.


We also run lots of events, and encourage people out in the community to run their own! If you want to hold a fundraising event/ activity for Youthline, whether you’re thinking of a cake sale, a dance off or a sponsored something or rather, our simple guide to fundraising is here to make it as easy as possible.  Click here to view!
