Ready to channel your love for this place into something good? We’re here to help.

We’re proud as punch of this incredible place we get to call home and there’s nothing more we love than sharing it with the world. But we also know that sharing it comes with a responsibility: a responsibility to nurture our environment, to protect our precious ecosystems, and to give back more than we take so that the generations who come after us can enjoy it and experience it the way we have.

Scroll on for three key ways and three key reasons to get behind Love Wānaka – right here and now – and support our journey to a thriving future.

We invite you to consolidate your business giving and do so in a way that adds value to your business and the audience you reach. It’s the telling of a new story about how to visit Wānaka, and will help to share your businesses’ commitment to place with your audience and your community.

Love Wānaka supporters will feature in our end-of-year and annual impact reports, and you’ll be promoted across our channels as a business that’s out there, doing good.

Love Wānaka funds hands-on environmental action exclusively within our region, so you know your support goes directly back to protecting the place you love.

We pool our funds for collective impact, so no matter how big or small your donation is, we have the capacity to drive impact, at scale.

20% of all funds raised are invested in a local endowment fund, enabling long-term, substantial funding opportunities. So, whilst we’re driving action right here and now, we’re also creating benefit for the generations to come.
