    Heart Foundation

    The Heart Foundation is New Zealand’s heart charity, leading the fight against our country’s single biggest killer – heart disease.

    We rely on the generosity and goodwill of people like you to support our work.

    Our vision
    Hearts fit for life, for this generation and the next.

    Since the Heart Foundation began, heart-related deaths have been reduced by 75% in New Zealand. However, heart disease is still our single biggest killer, claiming 6000 lives every year. Our vision is to ensure a lifetime of heart health for all New Zealanders.

    Our mission
    Stop New Zealanders dying prematurely of heart disease and help people with heart disease to live full and productive lives.

    Every 90 minutes, a New Zealander dies from heart disease and many of these deaths are premature and preventable. Our mission serves to curb this devastating statistic.

    Every day, we connect with communities across the country providing much needed support, care and advice to people and their families affected by heart disease
    Each year, we fund around $1.5 million of leading-edge research and specialist cardiologist training and it is all thanks to you
    Our education and prevention programmes tackle heart disease head-on in the community, wherever it is needed most. The work that we do with young children creates a foundation for keeping hearts healthy into the future
    Our dedication and commitment to tackling heart disease drives everything we do.
