Our Partner Projects

Big Buddy is proud to work with some great partners who make a positive difference with their support.

We're always keen to hear ideas on how we can do more for our community through partnering with businesses. If you'd like to work with us, please reach out.

Big Buddy Big Build


Our Foundation partner G.J. Gardner Homes' Big Buddy Big Builds has made a huge, positive difference to boys without fathers in their lives.

In 2024 the fourth house built by GJ's, especially for Big Buddy was sold with almost $100,000 donated to Big Buddy to support more boys in the South Auckland area where it was built.

Retail Promotions


Our Principal Partner, Mitre 10 Mega Hamilton has developed a number of promotions to raise funds for Big Buddy.

The Te Rapa and Ruakura stores have had some amazing promotions with a percentage of profits from selected kids' toys and products being donated to Big Buddy. They also actively support the local Buddies at their annual Big Day Out.

The proceeds raised are helping us match even more boys without a dad in their life to a fabulous Big Buddy

Fantail & Turtle lunches


Fantail and Turtle is a bar eatery on Auckland's North Shore, right in the middle of Takapuna's bustling Goodside at Smales Farm. It is a valued and consistent supporter of the Big Buddy cause.

They have held several fundraiser lunches in support of Big Buddy. Businesses and individuals alike thoroughly enjoy a sumptuous luncheon event for a worthy cause - it's fun, it's social, and everyone knows they are making a positive difference.

Kapura Golf Day

Kāpura's amazing lunch in the heart of Wellington included special guests Grant Fox, Cameron Bagrie and David Howman, not to mention mum, Anna, who blew everyone away with her heartrending story of having her twin boys and the positive impact the Big Buddy programme has had on their lives.

The lunch raised $51,600 for the Big Buddy programme!
