Love Wānaka supports organisations and initiatives who work in the climate, conservation and biodiversity space – accelerating our region’s shift towards a regenerative future.

We’re here to support your mahi – here’s how:

Each year, we allocate funds to local organisations who work in the environmental sector, with the inaugural Love Wānaka funding round opening on April 04 2024.

Funding will be allocated to registered charitable entities who work within the Wānaka region in the climate, conservation, and biodiversity spaces, with special consideration given to organisations and initiatives that will provide long-term benefit and that have great visibility for both locals and visitors.

This year, organisations can apply for grants of between $5,000-$10,000 to support their programme, project, or operational costs.

Love Wānaka connects visitors with volunteer opportunities within our region, so they can lend an hour, or two, to a local cause that’s close to their hearts.

For ongoing or recurring events, feel free to contact us regarding a permanent listing.

We want to connect our visitors to our place by sharing the stories of our people. Reach out if you have a story to tell, a community event to promote, or an opportunity for visitors to get their hands dirty.
