Volunteer for Aviva

Each year, Aviva supports literally hundreds of families and individuals to become safer. In the last three years, volunteers, including Board members and staff, have gifted a staggering 22,892 hours. If you’d like to join this amazing team of change-makers, read more below about our volunteering opportunities.

Volunteer for a campaign or event

Volunteering for a campaign or event is a great way to help out, if you can’t commit to a regular time but want to do something both fun and meaningful. Event volunteers might help out with raffle sales, event coordination, securing auction prizes, or collect donations for our street appeal.

Volunteer regularly

Perhaps you have a few hours a week that you can give to Aviva. This might include helping with administrative tasks; collecting in-kind donations, or picking children up from and returning them to school so that they can attend education groups in our offices.

Join our fundraising committee

Joining a fundraising committee is a wonderful way to use your experience and connections to support a worthy cause. While less involved and more informal than joining a Board, it requires making a regular commitment and agreeing to be an advocate for Aviva in your day to day life.

To find out more about our fundraising committee, contact community@avivafamilies.org.nz, or call 0274 537 323.

Become a digital volunteer

Do you have a computer or a smartphone? Would you like to make that time you spend on Facebook a little more meaningful? Sometimes, the smallest things you do can make a big impact. Supporting Aviva can be as simple as liking, sharing, and commenting on our posts. That lets Facebook know people care about what we’re sharing, and allows more people to see it!

A bigger digital volunteer commitment might include coordinating online sales to support our fundraising efforts.
