Stellar is proud to support Cure Kids by bringing together our clients, their staff and families to help positively impact our community, of which Cure Kids play such an important part.


Stellar’s staff are passionate about giving back and making a difference. As a result, our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program is at the forefront of what we do. It ensures we do not lose sight of our community’s interests. For Stellar, CSR covers a broad spectrum of activities; the management of our relations with our employees, customers, suppliers and the community.

Cure Kids' mission is a healthy childhood for everyone. Their purpose is simple: every single day, our researchers are driven to find the cures for serious health conditions that affect thousands of Kiwi kids. As an organisation Cure Kids focuses on raising funds to enable high-impact medical research to find the cures our kids need. The breadth of the work supported is wide; some of the projects include childhood cancers, inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, sudden unexpected death in infants (SUDI), stillbirth, burns, and child and adolescent mental health, among many others.
