Focus on our Funders
- Written by Dementia Wellington
ANZ has a brilliant scheme where the organisation matches their staff payroll giving, with the ANZ contributions going to their charitable trust, the ANZ New Zealand Staff Foundation. Since inception in 2000, the ANZ New Zealand Staff Foundation has distributed over $4 million in community grants to over 550 charities and community projects nationwide.
Last year, the ANZ Staff Foundation donated $10,000 towards our education programme – helping people affected by dementia to get more information about the practical and emotional implications of dementia, at diagnosis and as the condition progresses.
All Dementia Wellington workshops and seminars are a combination of information sharing and discussion, allowing attendees to ask questions about the challenges they are currently facing and also to meet others in similar situations.
“I attended the session today with Emma as the facilitator. I wanted to let you know that Emma was an inspiration. I came away feeling very positive about being able to face many of my present challenges. I particularly was impressed with the way in which Emma remembered a great deal of what people said and was then able to use it in her delivery.” – VF Aug 2018
Thank you ANZ Staff Foundation for being a fantastic funder!
We would like to acknowledge Alzheimer's NZ for passing on a contribution of the donations that were received in the Wellington region which we used to support our front-line services, this includes our education programme, supporter groups, one on one advice and our living well with dementia programme. The Dementia Wellington CEO Anne Schumacher said " We are so grateful to local Ryman villages for their fundraising efforts that contributed to the Alzheimers donation.”
Pub Charity have very generously granted us over $40,000 in the last 12 months. These funds have been used to update our clinicial database,fundraising collateral and printing our support services brochures which outlines all the essential services and education courses we offer.
