We Support Charities

Our way of giving back

Every year the NZFSA has the pleasure of being able to raise awareness of select charities and also help raise funds for their worthwhile causes along the way. At least one dollar from every calendar sold is currently donated to our principal charity, The Child Cancer Foundation. This relationship was developed through a very close association between firefighters, their families, and an intimate association with the CCF some 26 years ago. We are very proud to boast this relationship has grown over the years, and we are continuing to look at ways of further strengthening this bond, and modernising our fundraising methods too.

With the attraction of high profile television shows, an annual launch of the calendar, and the development of our website and social media networking sites, we are also able to benefit other charities as well. The National Burn Centre, and The Child Cancer Foundation have been benefactors from proceeds raised by the NZ Firefighters Sports Association. In a firefighter special of the television show “Wheel of Fortune”. $50,000 in cash and prizes was donated to CCF.

We will continue to develop our fundraising activities in the future, and any feedback is welcome from you!

The Child Cancer Foundation

ccf

The Child Cancer Foundation was formed in 1978 with its key focus to provide emotional and financial support to children with cancer and their families.

The Foundation also provides scholarships to children whose lives have been affected by cancer and we work closely with the health professionals who provide treatment to our children, supporting their professional development and research projects in childhood cancer. 

As an organisation we receive no government funding and rely solely on the generosity of the New Zealand public to deliver the services we offer and for this reason we are extremely grateful to be able to continue our partnership with the New Zealand Fire Service and be the recipient charity for this year’s Fire Fighters Calendar.

The New Zealand Fire Fighters’ support of the Foundation over the last 18 years through calendar sales is a natural extension of what is core to what Fire Fighters do – service and commitment to others.

OUR HISTORY

NZ Firefighters Calendar – Background

In 1990, in an effort to be competitive and comparable with other international fire departments, New Zealand firefighters established and hosted the First World Firefighter Games, in Auckland New Zealand.1800 Athletes took part and the ‘Games’ were rated an outstanding sucess. This lead to the establishment of an international, biannnual competition. Since then we have travelled and competed in hundreds of different events at 11 different WFF games venues throughout the world and held the NZ Fire Service’s Flag high and proud.

Our organisation of Firefighters formed an Association with the purpose of raising funds for the games now and in the future – for requirements such as travel, uniforms, sporting liaison etc. The Association established funding for the Games as its primary objective with its members as professionals who would encourage and promote fire safety in the home with the sole purpose of saving lives and property.

After the 1990 Games, it was decided to raise the required funds through the production of a calendar, featuring firefighters and their children, this would be sold by members, directly to the public. $4 to $5 from each calendar sold goes to support firefighters competing in international competitions. This has occurred now for 26 years, with calendar sales reaching incredible quantities due to an undeniable popularity. This has been confirmed by the request of the Alexanda Turnbull Library in Te Papa Museum, Wellington, to save a copy of each annual issue for perpetuity.

In the early years, The New Zealand Firefighters Calendar was produced solely to assist motivated firefighters in their sporting endeavours. As a consequence of events that touched the core of the membership, a decision was made to use a set value of the funds each year to benefit a chosen charity. The relationship we now have with the Child Cancer Foundation (CCF) is both well established and extremely rewarding. Not only has the NZFSA managed to raise over $750,000.00 for the CCF over the years, but we also continue to generate high profile exposure of their brand and cause, and raise funds through these ventures also.

Our models (who are all real firefighters) maintain availability for the charities year after year, and we can honestly say we have a strong and mutually respectful relationship.
