Make a donation - Leave a gift in your will - Provide a lasting legacy
Sow into God's work in the New Zealand medical community for the future by giving to CMFnz's endowment fund. This fund exists to provide an income stream for CMFnz and its ministries for generations to come.
Doctors and medical students living wholeheartedly for Christ
The Christian Medical Fellowship of New Zealand Incorporated is a community of Christian doctors, medical students and supporters, seeking to live wholeheartedly for Christ in all areas of their lives. CMFnz provides regional support and fellowship groups, national training initiatives, mentoring and support for students and the university Christian medical student groups, undertaking advocacy initiatives and encouraging medicine as mission, in New Zealand and overseas.
The Endowment Fund
Bequests to CMFnz are invested in CMFnz's endowment fund, ensuring that income generated from your gift will support CMFnz’s work for future generations of Christian medical practitioners and medical students. The endowment fund is not a separate legal entity but a CMFnz asset dedicated to supporting the long-term financial wellbeing of the organisation. The fund is governed by rules that ensure it serves the long-term sustainability of CMFnz’s work (available on request).
The fund capital is invested and only income is used for day-to-day operational expenditure. Through bequests and one-off gifts, supporters of CMFnz are able to contribute to this capital asset.
