How can I help?


Like most charities, we rely on the generosity of our community to keep making a positive difference.

Whilst volunteering to become a Big Buddy is always going to be our #1 goal, there are still lots of ways you can help, and we appreciate all the help we can get!

Support doesn’t always need to be in cash. With our family of partners, we run several events and fundraising activities throughout the year to help raise much-needed funds. At these events we often host silent and live auctions and are in need of items that we can turn into funds.

Maybe you are involved in a business that sells awesome products, or work in hospitality or tourism? Do you know a great company that you are a regular customer of…. or have a bach sitting empty on the weekend?

Silent auction items are normally valued around $100+ and live auction items $1,000+ They might be products, vouchers, experiences, or something completely different. We are open to any, and all suggestions!

If you are able to donate or source an auction item, or even put us in touch with a potential donor, then we would love to hear from you. Please reach out to our Partnerships Manager, Christie Stuart using the email button below.

Thank you!

Right now there are around 8,000 boys in New Zealand without fathers in their lives. These boys are navigating the challenges of life without the steady hand of a father to guide them. 

With your help, Big Buddy can continue to match young boys with good men to offer friendship, support and a good male role model to look up to. 

With 130 young boys currently on our waitlist, your support today is needed more than ever. 

Your donation will help build confidence and resilience in the lives of boys whose fathers are not around.
