Variety fills the funding gaps to help Kiwi kids reach their full potential. 

We are there for children in all sorts of challenging circumstances. We fund a broad range of requirements, from much-needed medical equipment, life-changing mobility needs, to providing basic essentials for Kiwi kids in need and innovative educational initiatives. 

Our specialised grants meet a wide range of grass-roots needs for children aged 0-18 years and also offer support to organisations that assist children.

Variety meets a wide range of grass-roots needs through three core programmes - Caring for Kids, Kids on the Move and Future Kiwi Kids.
