Become a ‘Friend of NZCC’

Why? To be part of chiropractic's future

Friends of NZCC is a regular giving programme that allows you to donate as little as $10 a month to support the future of chiropractic. Regular donations enable the College to plan ahead and provide the best possible chiropractic education programme today and for years to come.

Be the difference that you want to see in the world: this is what your donations achieve

  • Donations made to Friends of NZCC benefit our current student body. Your donations fund the equipment and the expansion that enables NZCC to offer a world class chiropractic education that attracts students from across the globe.
  • One of the keys to NZCC's success is knowing we have a secure and sustainable future. Contributions to Friends of NZCC help to secure the future of the College and provide for the next generation of chiropractic students.
  • Regular 'unrestricted' donations fund the majority of operations here at the College. Unrestricted means the money isn't earmarked for a specific purpose and can instead be used when and where it is needed most. As a non-profit organisation, this is the most important type of funding for us.

Be inspired by your membership

  • As a Friend of NZCC we hope you'll share in our excitement about the future of the College and enjoy celebrating the success of our students with us. To keep you up to date we'll send you a free, quarterly newsletter packed with the latest College news, events, and visiting speakers from New Zealand and overseas.
  • We also want to thank you for your support: when you join Friends of NZCC you'll receive Certificate of Giving. Please display your certificate with pride in your office or practice and maybe you'll inspire someone else to support the future of chiropractic!
  • We value your input and look forward to inviting your suggestion on many of the projects we are working on here at NZCC - look out for your opportunity to contribute.

What is the Tua Iwi Foundation?

The Tua Iwi Foundation is the heart of the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. It is for those who share our vision of a world of people expressing optimal potential.

The name Tua Iwi comes from the Maori word Tua meaning 'spine' or 'backbone' and iwi meaning 'family' or 'tribe'.

The Tua Iwi Foundation was established by the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2002 and has since grown to include people from all over the world who support the College in teaching vitalistic chiropractic.

Tua Iwi members share the same values and vision of chiropractic as the College and choose to provide regular financial support to the College.


Securing the future of Chiropractic

Contributions to the Tua Iwi Foundation support our mission to be a leader in philosophically-driven chiropractic education.

Donations enrich the lives of our students, strengthen our programme and secure the future of our College and profession. The Tua Iwi fund provides equipment vital to the growth of the campus and facilities that promote an optimum learning environment.

In the past, Tua Iwi donations have allowed us to expand our IT infrastructure including wireless internet, to grow the campus library collection, to renovate our on-site Wellness Cafe and purchase much needed technique equipment for the Chiropractic Centre.

These purchases among many others have made a huge difference.

Our vision is that the Tua Iwi Foundation will continue to be the heart of future development for our College and all of it's graduates.

“You have in your possession a Sacred Trust. Guard it well”.

- BJ Palmer, last written words

The New Zealand College of Chiropractic graduates leaders committed to the highest standards of professional excellence in the philosophy, science and art of chiropractic. This is the mission of the College that we live and breathe every day. It permeates the education of every student and the research we undertake.

Internationally, the College is leading the way in the provision of philosophically-driven chiropractic education. But to continue to grow, we need the help of the profession.

As chiropractors, we are charged with not only practicing chiropractic to the highest standards, but also protecting and growing its future. B.J. Palmer’s last written words gave us a clear mandate.

As we head into a new phase of growth and excellence at the College, we would like to ask for your help in improving the facilities on campus, building robust funds to safeguard the future, and investing in chiropractic research that will continue to give chiropractic greater recognition as a profession worldwide.

You can help us by giving financially, by referring prospective students to the College, and by taking part in our student recruitment efforts. We ask that you give your best, and send us your best.

With gratitude, integrity, vision, excellence and love.


Dr Phil McMaster
NZCC President
