Ways to Support our Mahi

Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou is a charity that relies on the generosity of others to make our mahi happen. Our donors share in the belief that children of people in prison are children of promise and potential. Join us in supporting positive futures for tamariki and whānau of people serving a sentence. 

Become a Regular giver

By joining our Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou Village of Support, your gift will see a family and their children receive social work support; through parenting programmes, goal setting or support with housing, income and navigating the justice system. Your gift will also see children paired with an ask-able, reliable mentor who gives them opportunities outside of their horizons.

By giving to Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou, you are allowing our children to be supported in all aspects of life, so they can stride into the future with confidence.


Give Once

Currently, there is no law that protects children of people in prison. While our service is free, the cost of supporting families and children is not.

Donation large or small, will help continue to support one of our most vulnerable populations, who are the invisible victims of crime and often forgotten in the current justice system. Help us support positive futures for the children and families of people in prison. 

If you would like to donate directly into our bank account, please email
