Donate with The Good Registry

The Good Registry is a giving platform that offers an easy way to donate to good causes like Bowel Cancer NZ. It beats giving unwanted and wasteful gifts to friends, family or clients – and funds raised go towards beating bowel cancer. It’s not only super easy to donate, it also means less admin for us! Here’s how it works:

  1. Good Gifts in lieu of presents – a Good Gift Registry is a meaningful way to help or honour someone who has been affected by bowel cancer. It’s ideal for birthdays, memorial services or other special milestones: simply ask guests to donate to Bowel Cancer NZ in lieu of flowers or presents.
  2. A really good way to fundraise – Keen to hold an event to raise funds for Bowel Cancer NZ? Set up a Good Gift Registry and ask your friends and family to donate to directly to your registry.
  3. Give Good Gift Cards – Looking for a thoughtful and useful corporate or personal gift? Good Gift Cards are the answer! You buy the card and your recipient gets to choose their favourite good cause to donate to – such as Bowel Cancer NZ.
