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 likers, corporate sponsorship, 1 off donations from the general public,  grants and bequests in order for us to provide our service free of charge to our partner agencies.  We ensure that we run as efficiently as we can at 40 cents a kg (* as of the 31st March 2020).

Our General Manager Michele is the only paid staff and we apply for grants to cover her wages.  Our next biggest cost is our warehousing to store and sort the food and non-food donations.  KCA also purchases in stocks from our sponsors of toiletries and some food items to supplement what we rescue - toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine hygiene, to name a few items.

In the past financial year, we’ve been generously funded by the following grant making organisations.

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