MusicHelps is the Official Charity of the NZ Music Hall of Fame. They support music-based projects at youth organisations, hospices, schools, medical charities, rehabilitation centres and more right across the country. They also give emergency assistance to those in the music community who find themselves experiencing illness, distress and hardship.
Music is used in many ways to improve the lives of New Zealanders. The New Zealand Music Foundation exists to support these endeavours. They raise funds to support suitable entities that are using music to help others.
