Charity donation gifts: making your gifts count

New Zealanders are generous. By headcount and dollars given, we're the second most generous country in the world (behind the US).

In a 2022 survey FINZ New Zealand and Perpetual Guardian found that even despite Covid (or maybe because of it) people are giving more. 

A survey we did at The Good Registry recently also found people want to use their gift-spend to help others. 

- 57% of our 220 respondents said they had given charity donation gifts. 

- 47% said they prefer to receive gifts that benefit others. 

There are lots of social enterprises and charities that you can use to have a positive impact with your gift dollars, like: 

- Downlights, which sells candles made by young adults with Down syndrome and intellectual or learning disabilities

- 27Seconds wine - all of their profits help people affected by modern slavery

- Good Bitches Baking - they sell cook books and tasty things that fund their kindness mahi

- Nisa sells ethical underwear and garments made by former refugees living in New Zealand

- and of course The Good Registry - where every gift is a chance to make a positive difference in the world. With one Good Gift Card from The Good Registry, recipients can donate to any of our 65 charity partners - they’re a gift that is simple, sustainable and kind.
