Thank you for supporting the students and staff of Massey University

On behalf of the staff and students of Massey, thank you again, we appreciate your help.

This year we are seeking your support to fund Massey’s vital work, with a special focus on the health of our nation.

Support Nursing Scholarships
New Zealand’s health system is in crisis. There are currently more than 4000 nursing vacancies across New Zealand, and our hospitals and medical centres are under enormous pressure. Staff shortages are affecting the level of care New Zealanders receive and mean many nurses are finding their jobs untenable. At the same time, nursing students are choosing to abandon study in favour of entering the job market – taking advantage of the opportunities and high salaries currently on offer – and avoiding course costs of about $10,000 a year.

Massey University’s Bachelor of Nursing degree is renowned for the quality of its graduates. Students are taught and supported by leading academics, clinicians, and practitioners and many graduates go on to specialise and assume leadership roles.

But we need your help to encourage school leavers to join the profession and ensure our nursing students complete their studies and enter the workforce equipped to deliver the best possible care to New Zealanders.

Our initial goal is to create an endowment fund large enough to fund 10 scholarships of $6,000 each year. To achieve this we will need to fundraise about $1.2 million over the next three years. Help us in our mission and to invest in our nation’s health.

The Advancement Fund
If you prefer to support the University more directly you can give to our Advancement Fund which supports opportunistic growth and development at Massey. The University plans its budget carefully  - committing funds many years in advance to prioritise research and teaching. Sometimes unexpected opportunities arise that require investment to realise them. Regrettably, the University must let these opportunities pass as budgets are already committed. The Massey University Foundation’s Advancement Fund is used at the discretion of the Foundation Board to fund these opportunities – these might be projects to improve or support teaching, research or facilities.

We hope you are able to support Massey – whether it’s to assist our nursing students, the Advancement Fund or another project at Massey.
