DC10 Fund

 Helping children reach their full potential 

DC10 Fund logo

The DC10 fund has been set up by Dan Carter, in partnership with UNICEF, to help kids everywhere dream big and achieve their goals.

The fund supports and advocates for UNICEF’s work to empower children and protect their rights - both here in Aotearoa and around the world.

I’m passionate about programmes that invest in children's futures. Through DC10, we can help kids pursue their ambitions, regardless of their circumstances

Supported Projects

Children in the Pacific

DC10 will raise funds to deliver life-changing, disaster resilient water and sanitation projects in the Pacific. Approximately 134,000 children, 830 schools and 38 healthcare facilities in the Pacific will benefit and the projects will help strengthen long term resilience in these communities.

Children in Aotearoa

Thanks to funds raised by the DC10 Fund corporate partners, UNICEF Aotearoa New Zealand will develop a range of teaching resources and toolkits, which will be rolled out in early childhood centres, primary and secondary schools. UNICEF Aotearoa New Zealand aims to reach over 300,000 children, teachers and parents, plus 500 schools.

Tonga Tsunami Appeal

Communities in Tonga were devastated after a volcanic eruption in January. Dan helped to secure over $500,000 from financial services company Jefferies to support the education system and ensure children can continue learning.

Kickathon: 7-8 April 2022

To launch the DC10 fund and serve as the inaugural fundraising project, Dan hosted a 24-hour 'Kickathon' on 7-8 April 2022. He pushed himself to the limit, kicking goals for 24 hours straight to raise money for UNICEF’s work providing access to essential clean water and sanitation for kids in the Pacific.
