Why does St John do face to face fundraising?

Face to face fundraising is one of the most cost effective ways that charities like St John can gain substantial support for important funding needs.

Our St John face to face fundraisers are a committed group of people passionate about St John. Every day they speak to New Zealanders about the important role the public plays in supporting St John frontline services.

St John has partnered with a leading face to face fundraising agency, Cornucopia. This partnership plays an important role in helping St John meet the rising demand for frontline services.

How can I identify a St John fundraiser?

Authorised St John Team Green fundraisers will:

  • Be wearing a Team Green polo shirt with Team Green badges on the sleeves, a St John lanyard and possibly a black jacket with St John branding (weather dependant)
  • Display a Cornucopia ID card with their name, photo and St John contact information
  • Provide all new Team Green members with a welcome pack 
  • Never ask for, or accept, cash donations

What information will I be asked to provide?

When you sign-up to Team Green you will be asked for:

  • Personal information such as a drivers licence to confirm your identity
  • Bank or credit card information to allow St John to set up your monthly commitment to Team Green

The security and privacy of this information is very important to St John. Once the above information is provided to us it is transmitted securely in compliance with industry standards.
