IHC has been fundraising since it was founded in 1949 by a group of parents unhappy with the lack of opportunities for their children with intellectual disabilities.  Today, IHC’s fundraising activities pay for programmes to enhance the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities and their families. Programmes paid for by fundraising are listed below.

Our fundraising programmes

Calf & Rural Scheme

IHC and PGG Wrightson work together to raise money for New Zealanders with intellectual disabilities. The Calf & Rural Scheme contributes enormously to IHC. 

Smile Club

You can become a regular giver to IHC and make someone smile! Join the IHC Smile Club and become part of a group of IHC’s most valued supporters.


The support IHC receives through bequests and other donations plays a major role in the work that IHC does for people with intellectual disabilities in New Zealand.
