Support Us

We need your support. Every year, 1,200 young New Zealanders take part in a life-changing experience aboard Spirit of New Zealand.

Sailing programmes and ongoing ship maintenance are partly funded by trainee fees and special sailings. However most of the funds required to sustain our activities - at the extraordinary level of performance and safety at which we operate - come from grants, sponsorships, donations, bequests and public appeals.

If you would like to make a donation to the Trust, the simplest way is by making an online donation.
