Fundraise for the cause

If you want to protect our coastlines and waterways, raising money for us will be one of the most rewarding things you can do. We’re a cause everyone can get behind — who doesn’t want litter-free beaches and swimmable streams?

Whether you’re a lone operator or you’re keen to get your friends and workmates on board, there are plenty of fun, challenging, and rewarding fundraising activities you can undertake. And fundraising for us is easy through Givealittle.

Since Sustainable Coastlines’ core activities are based outdoors, the cause aligns nicely with outdoor pursuits, like Tess and Breanna’s challenge to ride the length or the North Island, or our very own Steph Vercoe’s challenge to bungy off, run over and swim under the Auckland Harbour bridge to raise money for our cause. 

Not everyone is quite so active, and we love some of the more innovative ways people have thought of to fundraise for us, like the attendees of a recent conference held by the New Zealand Green Building Council who voted to donate to us on behalf of their speakers.

Gift with The Good Registry

Gift giving isn’t about consumerism, competition and creating clutter — it’s about showing that we care for people and the planet so it’s a fantastic opportunity to donate. Next time you have a special event, like a birthday or a wedding, consider creating a registry with our donation partner The Good Registry and ask friends and family to donate to Sustainable Coastlines instead of buying gifts.

If you’re shopping for somebody else, grab them a Good Registry Sustainable Coastlines gift card? People love the opportunity to give; they’re fantastic for:

  • Birthdays
  • Christmas
  • Weddings
  • Corporate gifts
  • Gifts for staff

The Good Registry and their charity partners have replaced 12,000 physical gifts with donations to causes like ours, with $320,000 going to good instead of on consumer gifts.
