Support Us

Beach Clean Ups. Community Gardens. Workshops for Tamariki. Our team is constantly seeking new opportunities to engage Hawke's Bay communities in sustainable practices.

When you donate to the Environment Centre, you can be certain that your gift is contributing to cleaning our rivers, educating whānau to grow kai and supporting communities to develop long-term resiliency to future disasters.

We know that climate change, unaffordable veges and biodiversity loss are daunting challenges. But by flax-root community action, Hawke's Bay can address these challenges and create a better future for our tamariki and the unique biodiversity that lives alongside us all.

We'd love you to partner with us and share your ideas on how Hawke's Bay can thrive for generations to come.

Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is when a donation to the Environment Centre is taken out of your regular pay prior to it going into your bank account. If your donation is more than $5, then a 33% tax rebate is immediately applied, i.e., if you make a $30 donation, you will only have a $20 reduction in your take-home pay.
