WHO WE ARE
FOUNDED IN ADVERSITY BUT FORGED IN HOPE

The New Zealand Rugby Foundation champions the safety of all players in the game we love.

For nearly 40 years, the NZ Rugby Foundation has partnered with players who suffer a life changing injury. And we do a whole lot more.​​​​​​​

Our work centres on four key pillars:

  • Support
  • Prevention, education and research
  • Advocacy
  • Fundraising

These pillars hold up the 155,000 registered rugby players in New Zealand who play one of our most loved sport. We are there from the moment a player steps out onto the pitch through to if the unimaginable happens and they suffer a life changing injury during play.
