Make-A-Wish New Zealand
Bayleys has an exclusive principal charity partnership with Make-A-Wish New Zealand.
Through the Bayleys Foundation the combined Bayleys Group nationwide is poised to embark upon an enduring journey alongside Make-A-Wish New Zealand, aimed at supporting the life-changing work undertaken by this organisation.
Make-A-Wish New Zealand grants the wishes of Kiwi children aged between 3 and 17 who are suffering from life threatening medical conditions. Currently Make-A-Wish New Zealand is able to grant just 200 wishes per year, the range of these wishes is limited only by the imaginations’ of the applicants.
With the support of the Bayleys Foundation and all members of the Bayleys Group nationally, we aim to bring that number up to 400 - the total number of eligible children diagnosed with a life threatening medical condition each year. We aim to ensure no child misses out on the opportunity to have their wish come true.
The Bayleys Foundation
The Bayleys Foundation is committed to supporting communities throughout New Zealand. As part of this, Bayleys Canterbury are proud supporters of many local schools, sports team and not-for-profit organisations across the country.Bayleys Canterbury are proud sponsors of:
The Christchurch Art Gallery
Bayleys Canterbury believe cultural institutions play a valuable role in our communities. The Christchurch Art Gallery is inspiring, sharing our values of innovation, our passion for art, and its ability to connect communities and people with art.
Christchurch City Mission
Every day, Christchurch City Mission works with some of Canterbury's most vulnerable individuals, families and communities. We've partnered with the Christchurch City Mission to help contribute to long-term social change in our community.
Bayleys Plate up for a Purpose
The Christchurch City Mission wants every child in Canterbury to have all the tools they need for school. Bayleys Plate up for a Purpose raised $200,000 to put shirts on backs, shoes on feet and books in bags - helping remove roadblocks for future generations across Canterbury.
Cans for a Cause
Since Covid-19, we have a whole new level of food insecurity in our community, and Wellbeing North Canterbury Trusts are serving many families who were already vulnerable. Through Bayleys North Canterbury's Cans for a Cause, we have been able to help out.
Bringing back birdsong to Hanmer Springs
Bayleys Hanmer is donating $100 from every house sold in the Hanmer Basin to protect and bring back birdsong. The birdsong forms an integral part of life in Hanmer Springs and it's about doing something tangible that makes a difference. Together we can ensure that our birdsong is not lost and so, so much more.
Surfing for Farmers
Surfing for Farmers is about getting farmers off farm and having a bit of fun while trying something new. Farmers and growers leave everything they have on the land, they give their all to support New Zealand's economy to ensure we have access to the very best food. However this does take a toll on their wellbeing and mental health.
