Funding Sponsors

Thank you to all our sponsors (past and present) who without their support we would not be able to assist residents in your local community.  

KCA relies on the generosity of our financial donors - payroll giving from our supporters, corporate sponsorship, 1 off donations from the general public,  grants and bequests.  This support allows us to provide our service free of charge to our partner agencies.  We ensure that we run as efficiently as we can at 68 cents a kg (* as of the 31st March 2022).

At present we have 2 paid employees and a fabulous team of 63 volunteers all working in bubbles with face masks. This allows our charity to continue to operate throughout all alert levels/traffic lights settings.   KCA also purchases in stock using financial donations received for this purpose.  By purchasing from our sponsors we get the best prices.  This stock supplements items that our food rescue program doesn't receive a lot of.  It can be anything from tinned goods, to toiletries such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and feminine hygiene.

Over the years, we’ve been generously funded by the following grant making organisations to pay our operational costs.

Community Organisation Grants Scheme (COGS) - Hutt, Wellington and Whitiera
