Ngā Manu Endowment Fund

Create a lasting Legacy

Give a gift to support Ngā Manu Nature Reserve today, tomorrow and long into the future.

Ngā Manu Nature Reserve has grown to become an important part of our community and to inspire commitment to the natural world for all that visit and get involved.  Its purpose is to provide a safe, accessible, and welcoming place where people can connect with the natural world and are inspired to commit to working together to protect it for future generations.

We established the Ngā Manu Endowment Fund with Nikau Foundation in 2017 with the goal of building a reliable funding stream to support Ngā Manu Nature Reserve long into the future. Every dollar given to the Ngā Manu Endowment Fund is invested and grown so the Reserve can continue to be enjoyed by our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Future grants from the Fund will support Ngā Manu’s operation and our future development, deliver public education concerning and the environment and assist with conservation work in the wider community.

This really is the gift that keeps giving and we hope you can be a part of our future.
