As a charitable trust, the Hauraki Gulf Conservation Trust is dependent on the help and goodwill of the public. There are a number of ways you can help:
Become a Volunteer
There are always a number of projects around the Hauraki Gulf that you can participate in should you or your group have some spare time and energy (see Current Projects). If you enjoy weed control, planting trees, track-making, organising working bees or generally “mucking in”, the Trust would be very keen to hear from you. Please contact one of the Trustees or contact the Trust here.
Make a Donation
You don’t have to live around the Hauraki Gulf to get involved in a conservation project on the island. One way you can support the work of the Trust is through donating funds.
People frequently want to donate funds for environmental purposes but find it difficult to decide where the best place is to put those funds to work.
You may wish to create a lasting personal legacy of your own or to remember a special family member who has passed on by donating funds for an environmental project or towards the purchase of a strategic parcel of land that can be used and enjoyed by the public in perpetuity.
Whatever your reason for wanting to donate, the Hauraki Gulf Conservation Trust can provide the level of accountability and security that you need. The Trust will work with you to ensure that your donation is utilised for the specific purpose or purposes for which you are giving it, and will report back to you regularly to keep you informed of how those funds have been spent. All donations over $5 can be claimed as a tax deduction.
