Sponsorship monies allow us to continue to provide critical initiatives which enhance various aspects of a person’s life. Sponsorship also allows us to build a firm foundation to assist the people we support with their integration into the community.

Our marketing and communications team works diligently alongside the media on all aspects of our activities, including our sponsored events and programmes.

Sponsors benefit from exposure via our marketing materials, including our quarterly newsletter Across the Spectrum which is sent to more than 2000 subscribers, including physicians, politicians, schools, hospitals and the general public.

Additionally, chief advisers and directors of the Ministry of Health receive a copy of our Annual Report, which lists in detail our sponsors and partners.

We have an array of yearly events which further reinforce our sponsor relationships, including our Annual Gala Ball, and our biennial Showcase Talent Quest and Art Exhibition.

A partnership with us is a collaborative exercise aimed at building community engagement and goodwill for both the sponsor organisation and Spectrum Care.

For more information on sponsorships, contact our Communications and Marketing Manager on 09 634 9788 or email justin.walsh@spectrumcare.org.nz.


Download a brochure about Bequests

Since its inception, Spectrum Care has benefited from legacies and bequests and this tradition has continued to the present day.

By making a donation through a will, you can be part of this tradition and play a key role in developing our capacity as a world-class service provider of disability support services.

You’ll also be making a significant contribution toward the lives of people with disabilities now and in the future. Bequest donations directly assist the people we serve by providing resources and supporting initiatives to ensure that we continue to help people with disabilities live great lives.

A bequest or endowed gift keeps giving forever and even modest gifts can provide lasting benefits.

Bequests can take a variety of forms:

  • Specific bequest – This is a gift of a fixed sum of money, property, shares and/or valuables of various descriptions
  • Percentage of estate – As the title would suggest, this is a gift of a specific percentage of your estate
  • Residual bequest – This type of gift involves leaving all or a portion of the remaining assets of your estate after all debts, taxes, fees and other bequests have been paid
  • Deferred bequest – This is a gift that provides for any relatives or friends during their lifetimes, but also benefits Spectrum after their deaths

Making a bequest is a powerful way of supporting Spectrum Care, often at a level not possible during your lifetime.

Leave a legacy that lasts – make a difference, make a bequest.

For more information on bequests, contact our Communications and Marketing Manager on 09 634 9788 or email justin.walsh@spectrumcare.org.nz.
