We are incredibly grateful to the businesses which provide Shine with donations of money, volunteer hours, goods and services.

If your business would like to help more  people experiencing domestic violence get safe and motivate more people inflicting domestic violence to change their behaviour, here are some ways you could help:

If you would like to discuss any of these options, please contact Brianna Conelly on 021 192 3548 or email her at

Business donors are entitled to a deduction for charitable donations, limited only by the amount of the company’s net income. The donation deduction has also been extended to unlisted closed companies (companies with five or fewer shareholders).

EXAMPLE: Good Company Ltd is a publicly-listed company. Last year, Good Company supported Shine with a $20,000 donation. Good Company’s net income before taking into account its donations was $200,000. Good Company can deduct the full $20,000 in the company’s income tax return (IR4). Company deductions for donations also include unlisted companies with five or fewer shareholders and for Maori Authorities (on the IR8 income tax return).
