Thanks to our superstar supporters and CF Heroes


Wednesday April 1, 2020

A huge thank you to everyone who generously donated to Cystic Fibrosis NZ in the 2019-20 financial year!

Thanks to your support, and that of other kind-hearted people like you, here are just a few of the things you've made possible.

 Together we:

  • provided 32 transplant grants for use towards expenses such as immediate family travel and accommodation

  • established a research strategy with Cure Kids with the aim of making a tangible difference to people with CF

  • helped 369 people with CF to increase their level of physical activity through the Breath4CF programme

  • employed a fourth CF Fieldworker to improve practical and emotional support for the CF community

  • provided $110,176 in welfare support, such as heating and nutrition

  • enabled 757 outpatient clinics to be attended by CF Fieldworkers

  • lobbied and secured funding for the 'miracle drug' Kalydeco

You can read more about the incredible support and progress you've helped make possible in our 2019 Annual Report.

So thank you again; you really have done something amazing.

Donation summaries & Covid-19

We’re preparing annual donation tax certificates for everyone who donated in this tax year, but unfortunately due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to print and post them. We can however send them electronically and we’ll be sending an email this week to those supporters whose email address we have.

If you don’t hear from us by email, we might not have your email address. Please email us on with your full name in the subject line and we will update our records and ensure you get your donation summary by mid-April.

What's a CF Hero? 

Our CF Heroes are a group of dedicated donors who provide ongoing support to Kiwis with CF and their families through an affordable, regular donation to Cystic Fibrosis NZ.

This dependable support ensures that we can deliver important services such as emotional and practical support from the CF social workers, contributions to research, and advocacy for access to better treatment.
