We care, advocate for and champion the safety of all the players in the game we love.

The New Zealand Rugby Foundation is a national organisation and a NZ registered charity (CC42547).


Partnering with New Zealand’s seriously injured players for life, we are at the heart of a true team where whānau, funders, donors, affiliates and the rugby community combine to ensure support for seriously injured players is maximised. We engage with our communities and find inspiration in the courage and humanity of our seriously injured players.​​​​​​​

Stand with us in providing empathetic support, opportunity and assistance for catastrophically injured rugby players and their whānau.

Join with us in advocating for safe play, including support for leading edge research into concussion and injury prevention.

And bear with us as we humbly call on you to donate generously to a cause that is infinitely more important than on field results. 

Join our team: Once a team mate, always a team mate.
