Why Support the Spirit?

Here at the Spirit we know that the work we do with young Kiwis is hugely beneficial. This year alone, we will transform the lives of more than 1200 young New Zealand participants - developing them into future leaders and strong contributors to their communities and networks.

Independent research has shown that young people gain vital skills as a result of attending Spirit of Adventure's 10-day development voyage and these skills better equip them for early adulthood.

Our programmes and ongoing ship maintenance are partly funded by participant fees and special sailings throughout the year. However, most of the funds required to sustain our activities - at the extraordinary level of performance and safely at which we operate - rely heavily on the spirit of generosity of people like you.

We are looking for the support of people who share our commitment to New Zealand youth. By donating today, you help meet the needs of another young person. The need to have life skills, be cared for, valued, useful, grounded and cultivating their own talents and feelings of self-worth.

Spirit of Adventure Trust is extremely lucky to have so many fantastic supporters.

Principal corporate partner: Hyundai NZ

We are very grateful to have the support of Hyundai New Zealand, a company that shares the same values as the us
– Excellence, Innovation, Integrity, Environmental Sustainability and Impact – and we're enjoying a great relationship.
