Fundraise for Prostate Cancer Foundation
With no government funding we are reliant on the generosity of New Zealanders to help us in the fight against prostate cancer and event-based fundraising plays a huge role in that. We never cease to be amazed at the creativity and dedication of people across the country who organise events to support the Foundation. We greatly appreciate the work that goes in to bringing these events to fruition, and the support they provide.
Fundraise for Prostate Cancer Foundation, organise your own running event, host a dinner party or fundraise in honor of a loved one. It’s simple to start, and your fundraiser can make a lasting impact. Find out more about organising an event.
Once you’ve registered your event, it’s time to set up your personalised fundraising page. It’ll only take a few minutes and you’ll be set to share it with your family, friends and work colleagues.

Businesses, community groups, families and individuals all over New Zealand join together in September in getting the message out to New Zealand men to “get checked” for prostate cancer.
Ride a blue bike, bake a blue cake, wear a blue cape, row across a lake, go for a run or hit a hole in one! This year’s campaign is all about encouraging people to Do Something Blue to Help a Mate Through. The sky’s the limit when it comes to doing something blue, so hop on over to blueseptember.org.nz to join us.
Registrations are now open for Dry July, which challenges people to go alcohol-free for the month while raising funds to help create a better life for New Zealanders affected by cancer. We are really pleased to be a beneficiary of Dry July 2021, alongside our friends at Look Good Feel Better, Bowel Cancer New Zealand and Pinc & Steel.
Funds raised will go towards the continued national roll-out of Prost-FIT, an exercise programme designed specifically for men with prostate cancer, as well as providing practical support services. We’ve created a PCFNZ team and would love you to support us this year, just click here.

INSURANCE FOR GOOD is a new fundraising tool that gives supporters like you a way to donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation at no cost. It is a charitable business programme that donates 20% of the brokerage commission to the Foundation for every year you hold commercial cover.
The service is serviced by Crombie Lockwood, one of New Zealand’s largest insurance brokers, who aim to provide better pricing and service, and of course, a donation to us. We are informed that so far everyone that has signed up has improved their cover and reduced their payments. Sounds great doesn’t it?
In brief, your commercial insurance can provide incredible long term and sustainable support for the Foundation, and in turn men and their families living with prostate cancer. So, if your commercial insurance is due for review in the next few months, please contact Fundraising and Marketing Manager Paul Hayes by email or phone 027 293 7466 who will put you in touch with the team at Insurance for Good.
