How to give

Everything College is today, and aspires to be in the future, is only possible because of our wide community of support and the generosity of Old Boys and other benefactors, past and present. Philanthropy is a College tradition, one we share with all of the world's great educational institutions.

Donor information

  • Currency

    You can make a gift from anywhere in the world. Your gift amount will be recorded and receipted in NZ dollars.

  • Tax deductibility

    Christ’s College is a registered charity - a NZ-based charitable trust registered with the NZ Charities Commission, registration number CC21589 - and, as such, your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by New Zealand law. Individuals can claim a 33.33% tax credit for all donations over $5 made to the Campaign.

  • Gift options
    • Your gift can be specified to your particular area of interest within the campaign, or you can direct Christ’s College to use the gift in the way that best meets the campaign priorities
    • You can make a one-off gift, or you can spread your gifting amount over a period of time between two to five years
    • Rather than an immediate gift, you may consider a bequest or legacy gift in your will, such as a pecuniary gift - a specified sum of money, a residuary gift - the remainder of an estate after other bequests have been made, or a contingent or reversionary bequest - initially left to a preceding beneficiary before it passes to the second beneficiary
    • Your gift may be as cash or it may be in non-cash assets. Gifts of land or property made during a donor's lifetime attract the same tax incentives as gifts of shares, and other forms of non-cash gifts such as works of art, a chattel, or livestock. To find out more, please contact us early in the process so we can work with your financial advisers to help arrange the transaction.

  • Campaign target

    The campaign target will be divided into a number of measures around the four components of the campaign: scholarships, building professional learning and leadership capabilities for staff, developing innovative curriculum initiatives, and facilities.

    • As an indication a full boarding scholarship would require an endowment investment of over $1m based on today’s returns to be sustained continuously. College would like to achieve an asset level where it can offer increasing levels, diversity and scope of scholarship options
    • To endow a 6-month professional teaching or curriculum development initiative would require a similar investment. The campaign sets out to enable long-term programmes, that clearly demonstrate College’s intent to offer unique and exclusive opportunities for staff that ultimately benefit the boys. It is envisaged that this will be implemented over a number of areas within the school
    • The cost of the new facilities will be considerable, relevant to a new era requiring a bold vision. The new Sporting Excellence, Health & Wellbeing Centre will be the first facility built, and alone has an indicative cost - based on recent new building development within the College - of over $20m
    • The Science Centre and the Music Learning and Performance Centre, will be additional and will also have a combined indicative cost - based on recent new building development within the College - of over $20m.

    Ultimately the success of the For the boys. For our future. campaign will determine the final outcomes. Christ's College itself recognises the boldness of the vision, but equally acknowledges College’s wider community who have historically supported previous visionary campaigns at least once in a lifetime.

    For the boys. For our future. is your opportunity now.
