Funding and Donations

We depend on your support

Kiwi Adventure Trust is a charitable trust that relies on the generous support from our funding partners, sponsors and donors. Kiwi Adventure Trust charges fees for its courses and these are heavily subsidised by the trust.

On these pages you will learn about how you can get involved in funding. Whether you need to fundraise to get yourself, a school group, club or some friends along to a programme or event or are able to help by contributing in some way, such as volunteering or donating to Kiwi Adventure Trust.
Behind the scenes are a fantastic team of people who work tirelessly to ensure that Kiwi Adventure Trust continues to make a remarkable difference to the lives of New Zealanders, both young and old.
We also have a very devoted and active Board of Trustees who deserve a standing ovation. They freely give their time, energy and expertise to contribute to the growth and direction of Kiwi Adventure Trust.

How is Kiwi Adventure Trust funded?

Aside from the fees charged for programmes and events that meet some of the basic operating costs of providing top quality outdoor education and events, Kiwi Adventure Trust depends on additional funding sources to cover some of the other costs associated with our programmes, events, facilities and equipment.

Funding partners

Kiwi Adventure Trust are lucky to have the support of various funding partners though grant applications. Funding partners are often charitable entities that distribute funds to applicants that meet their strict criteria. Sometimes these funding partners are gaming trusts or publicly owned businesses who promote responsible selling of alcohol etc and helping Kiwi Adventure Trust is part of their commitment of giving back to the community.


Last but not least, Kiwi Adventure Trust also benefit from the generosity of individuals who donate funds. Sometimes these are people who give a one-off contribution because they are thankful for what Kiwi Adventure Trust have done for them.
