Donation Questions

What type of donations can be made?
Your Year Recurring donations

As an Old Maroon you can contribute dollars and cents that relate to the year you started playing for the Club. For example, if you started playing in 1993 your donation is $19.93; this can be paid weekly, fortnightly or monthly. This option allows you to contribute at different levels as you move through your career — from leaving University and starting work all the way through to your retirement years.

You can set this up with your bank using internet banking or download the automatic payment form with The Maroon Foundation's details already completed, add your own details and deliver the completed form to your bank directly or send to admin@maroonfoundation.nz and we will action it for you.


One-off donations
An alternative to recurring smaller donations, is to make a high value lump sum once only donation.

No-interest loans
Old Maroons only sacrifice the interest on their loan and can get their principal back at short notice if required.

Bequests 
Making a bequest in your will is a simple and effective way of supporting the Foundation beyond your lifetime. Firstly, speak to your family about your plans so they understand why you are choosing to remember The Maroon Foundation in your will. We recommend that you seek professional advice and speak to your lawyer about revising your will.
