Women's refugeSince 1973, Women's Refuge has offered safe shelter and support to women and their families who have become victims of domestic violence in New Zealand. With police responding to some 200 domestic violence cases everyday, the need for such an important and vital life-line organisation has never been more valued.

LifeEducationTrustLife Education is an excellent charity that helps children to better understand important issues that relate to trust, communication, building friendships and healthy living. They also encourage respect and understanding towards those who differ in race, gender, social class and religious beliefs. They successfully teach 245,000 primary and intermediate children every year.

Forest & Bird forest_logois New Zealand’s leading independent conservation organisation protecting and restoring our wildlife and wild places. They give nature a voice and speak for all our threatened species and fragile places - from endangered Maui’s dolphins to high-country tussock-lands. Forest & Bird seeks to ensure that our natural treasures are protected so that they can continue to be enjoyed by future generations.

KoangaInstituteFocused on protecting essential plant and vegetable seeds for the past 30 years, the Koanga Institute is now accredited as having New Zealand’s largest collection of heritage vegetable seeds (800+) in addition to over 400 of the country's vital fruit, berry and tree seeds. Their aim is to ensure the long-term sustainability, protection and regeneration of New Zealand’s bio-diversity heritage and to cultivate this important work into the wider community.

The Graeme Dingle Foundation aims to inspire all school age New Zealand children to reach their full potential through programmes that help build self-esteem, promote good values and which teach valuable life, education and health skills. Current programmes include Kiwi Can, Stars, Career Navigator and Project K. Their programmes have the potential to significantly benefit New Zealand through a youth population who are better educated, have enhanced employment prospects, greater self-esteem and are healthy and motivated.

The Garden to Table programme is changing the way children approach and think about food. All around the country we want to see children enthusiastically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food. Childhood obesity is an increasing issue in New Zealand and at Garden to Table we strongly believe that children who understand where good food comes from, know how to prepare it and then share it with friends and whanau, are likely to make better food choices.
