We teach our little farmers that we each have two hands, one for giving and one for receiving. 

Please donate to support our work in the community. All donations, big or small, are gratefully received.  Our Project is completely reliant on the gifting and generosity of others that share our vision of communities that grow their own solutions.

There are many ways you can choose to donate:


One-off donations can be made with a credit card through our Givealittle page. There are no fees taken and you get a receipt for tax credit purposes.

We’re happy to receive donations straight into our Kiwibank bank account: 38-9015-0629515-07.

Cheques can be made out to The Common Unity Project and posted to us, Common Unity Project,         P O Box 31026, Lower Hutt 5040.

We accept cash but please don’t send money through the mail! Contact our Project Coordinator, Julia Milne at julia@cupa.org.nz / 027 372 3385 to organise dropping off a cash donation.


Regular giving means we know our income and can plan our spending. If you’re able to give regularly, even in small amounts, please set up an automatic payment to our Kiwibank bank account: 38-9015-0629515-07, or complete this form and take it to your own bank.

For tax credit purposes, we’ll generate a receipt at the end of the financial year for the total of your regular donations.

Payroll giving is another option for donating regularly. Money is taken straight from your salary with tax credits applied immediately each time you’re paid. Ask your employer if they offer this service, or consult the IRD website for details of the payroll giving scheme.


A donation made through your will is a wonderful gift you can leave to our community after your death. You can choose to leave a specific amount, an item of value, or a percentage of your estate. To make plans for a bequest you should consult your lawyer, the Public Trust Office, or another trust company for help with drafting your will.

Thank you for your generosity!

Together, we grow.

Registered Charitable Trust 

The Common Unity Project is a registered charitable trust (CC48997) which is funded by philanthropic grants, service contracts, donations and fundraising. Our management staff’s salaries are covered by grant funding, so every dollar you donate will be spent directly on activities for the benefit of our community.

We’re approved by the Inland Revenue Department for donee status under the Income Tax Act 2007, so donations of $5 or more made by New Zealand individuals and business are generally eligible for tax credits of up to one third of the amount donated.

Our accounts are professionally audited each year to Charities Services reporting standards.
