Major gifts

Around 4,200 rangatahi are impacted by a cancer diagnosis each year. That’s more than 10 rangatahi every day who rely on your generosity to ensure our support services are available when their lives are turned upside down.

Vital support services

Canteen will work with you to ensure your support achieves the greatest impact for rangatahi, across the most critical care needs, including creating opportunities for rangatahi to connect with peers who can understand what they’re going through at our community events and camps and online via Canteen Connect, providing specialised providing specialised individual support and counselling that supports the wellbeing of rangatahi, and rangatahi development, such as leadership opportunities and financial grants.

The J I Urquhart Family Trust

“As a loyal supporter of Canteen Aotearoa, we would like to share how we first became involved with the organisation. Our interest initially stemmed from a connection with Trudi Johnston, a teenage relative of one of the Trustees who had a terminal cancer diagnosis. Trudi developed a strong association with Canteen and had a leadership role at the time of her passing. The Trustees could appreciate the support and companionship available throughout her involvement, also the help and support available to her parents as they agonised over the difficult journey with her until she passed. The Trustees also recognised the lack of Government funding for this group of young people and the worthiness of our support, fitting in with our objectives.”
