Raukatauri Music Therapy Trust Celebrates 20 Years

Today we are celebrating the Raukatauri Music Therapy Trust‘s 20th Birthday! This day marks 20 years of providing transformative music therapy services to those in need across the motu.

This journey was beautifully captured by our friends at TVNZ on last night’s Sunday programme. In case you missed it you can watch it here, and Te Aniwa Hurihanganui’s digital news feature is available too.

During the show Raukatauri co-Founder Dame Hinewehi Mohi was featured saying that the Trust is: “… always wanting to expand and be bigger, but needing to be very realistic about how we can afford to do that with no direct Government funding. So it’s sad in our 20th Birthday year that we do have the biggest challenge financially ever.”

As a Charitable Trust, Raukatauri rely on donations and fundraising which in turn enable those in need to access subsidised yet high quality music therapy sessions. Please consider donating to Raukatauri today, either with a one off donation, or through our Koha Programme.

The Koha for Raukatauri giving programme allows individuals to support Raukatauri monthly at whatever contribution level they choose. Raukatauri receives no direct Government funding and needs to raise over $2,200,000 each year to keep all of our programmes running, while constantly expanding to reach more New Zealanders in need.

Music therapy allows children experiencing long-term hospitalisations, adults with dementia, children impacted by trauma, those with developmental disabilities and many others the chance to express themselves, develop independence, and form meaningful relationships. Whether you can give $5 or $500 each month, you are providing life-changing music therapy with your support. Click here to contribute with a Koha today.
