Make a Difference

Let’s work together on positive change to create opportunities for the people of Northland.

You can make a difference

Encouraging positive health, education, and training to empower the rangatahi of Northland takes the commitment and support of a community. Whether you are an individual, a group or a business, there are many ways that you can get involved to help Rugby For Life with its life changing programmes.

As an inclusive community focused charity, it’s not just about donating money. We need support with fundraising, volunteering at events, corporate partnerships, employment opportunities, training, apprenticeships, internships, and mentoring.

Please join us and help create opportunities for the people of Northland.

Get Involved

Rugby For Life contributes $20,000 per year to our RFL Club Coordinators in their clubs. We are giving people the opportunity to directly impact the outcomes in your local community by making a pledge to help us with this cost.

You can make a lasting impact today, by pledging 2 weeks, 5 weeks, 3 months, or a full year.

Pledge Now

You can pledge as much or as little as you can, with 100% of the pledge going directly to pay for our RFL Club Coordinators.

Scan the QR codes (or click on the image) here to make your pledge.


We can even make it really easy for the pledger and for pledges over $2,000, we can spread it out to bite-sized monthly payments over 12 months. And because we are a charitable trust, you can even claim $0.33c back on every dollar donated from the tax man.

Another way to ensure your local RFL Club Coordinator gets to continue their amazing work is by getting a group our your friends or business network together to all pledge to your RFL Club Coordinator.

So get your team together and pledge your support today!

Community Fundraiser

Rugby For Life could not do anything without the amazing support from our partners and the generosity of our community. Our Rugby For Life Fundraiser event was on June 26th at the Duke of Marlborough Hotel in Russell. Although the event has already happened, you can make a donation or pledge a gift to the foundation.


Do you need staff?

We want to provide opportunities and grow employment pathways that lead to our rangatahi creating lifelong careers and connections in Northland.
