Cystic fibrosis is the most common life limiting genetic disorder affecting New Zealand children. One in 25 Kiwis carry the gene that causes cystic fibrosis (CF), often without knowing. There are over 500 Kiwis living with the condition.
An entire life for an individual and many years for their family is shaped around dealing with the demands of cystic fibrosis. Our mission is to help those individuals and families live a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis, and this drives everything we do.
We provide help through the support from our CF social workers and network of branches, by proving social and financial support, advocacy services, information and resources for each life stage, and by funding CF research that makes an impact.
This support is made possible through our generous donors, with many of our key support programmes being powered by major gifts.

Whilst we make every dollar count towards our vision of a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis, our ability to make a significant difference is limited by one thing; the availability of funds.
Our team will work with you to ensure that your gift is achieving impact in the area that you are passionate about. Talk to us to learn more about the difference you can make.Make an enquiry
