GAP is a registered charity and while we receive partial funding from Greyhound Racing New Zealand (GRNZ), we are dependant on donations to help fund our rehoming programme. We are trying to rehome 400 hounds a year by 2023 and your help is vital for us to achieve this goal. Most of our funds go to caring for the greyhounds in foster care, paying their vet bills and training them to become pets. Your donation will also enable us to provide post adoption advice and lifetime support. In order for us to increase adoption numbers, we also need donations to help promote greyhound adoption. 

You can support greyhounds through a one-off donation, a regular donation or through leaving a gift in your will. Please consider a monthly donation if you would like to help us help hounds throughout the year. Donations of $5 or more are eligible for a tax rebate of 33.3%.

Donate Via Your Pay 

Payroll giving is an easy and tax efficient way to support us. If your employer offers payroll giving it allows you to make regular contributions directly from your pay and automatically receive a tax credit of 33c for every dollar you donate. So, if you donate $10 directly through your pay, you’ll receive an automatic tax credit of $3.33. GAP gets the full $10 but it only costs you $6.66.
Payroll giving is a scheme administered by employers in New Zealand that allows employees to make regular donations to approved charities. More information about payroll giving, and how to start donating, is available here on the IRD’s website:
