Making a donation

There are several ways to support Rare Disease Day:

  1. You can donate directly to the rare disease support group of your choice. You can choose a group from the support group directory pages on the NZORD website and contact them to arrange a cheque or an online payment.
  2. Some support groups are not incorporated and may not have a bank account. You can still support them with confidence by sending your donation to NZORD. NZORD will hold the funds in trust and ensure they are tagged to a particular rare disease or support group as appropriate. 
  3. You can contribute to furthering rare disease research in New Zealand by donating to the online campaign to raise funds for the New Zealand Institute for Rare Disease Research. The Institute is wholly owned by NZORD and has been set up to further rare disease research in New Zealand.
