Corporate Ways For Us To Work Together

Event Sponsorships

Sponsoring Totara Hospice events can help to generate positive exposure for your company and shows a commitment to your local community. You will be joining a family of sponsors that know that their investment into the Sponsorship of the event is going to result in much needed funds for Totara Hospice.

Totara Hospice has an important job in our wider South Auckland Community, when an opportunity arose last year for South Auckland Motors to support the Ladies Lunch we were most excited to be involved.  The event gives us the opportunity to present our brand and products to a wide and varied audience while we support the great work that Totara Hospice do.  The marketing team at Totara Hospice are very professional and make a real effort to ensure there is tangible value in any of the sponsorships we have undertaken.  The Lunch itself gave our female staff, suppliers and customers the opportunity to connect in a fun, non-corporate environment and we have had many requests for a return spot at our table. – Michael Tappenden – Dealer Principal, South Auckland Motors

Gifts in Kind

Donating gifts in kind is another way to show your support for Totara Hospice in a way which is relevant to your business and to our needs. We may need donations in the form of products for events, stationery, medical supplies, toiletries for our patients, or equipment for our Inpatient Unit. Food supplies are also much appreciated.
