Water Trip with Youthtown Taupo Holiday Programme
Funding And Donations

As a not for profit, registered charity, Youthtown relies on funding to continue to provide great value to families of New Zealand.

Funding you

Youthtown receives the ‘Authorised Purpose’ proceeds from Gaming Venues that pledge support to Youthtown (listed here). We then share this with the local community in grants (recipients listed here). See if you are eligible to share our funding (here). Application is on-line (here).

Funding us

As our funding is limited, Youthtown also relies heavily on successful applications to council, government, sports trusts and other funders to support our programmes.

Corporate contribution and private donations are hugely appreciated to boost Youthtown’s ability to achieve our common goal of empowering young New Zealanders to be the best they can be.

If you’d like to contribute, please contact Debbie Nelson, our Chief Financial Officer by email: accounts@youthtown.org.nz
