Volunteers & Members

The Aroha Island Charitable Trust is a not for profit community group, set up to manage and care for this beautiful open space.

Our onsite accommodation helps to fund our operational expenses. However the Trust can always do with more funding to ensure we can continue to maintain and develop this wonderful sanctuary.

If you wish to support the Aroha Island Charitable Trust you can become a member or volunteer (more information below), or if you simply want to make a donation to help us with our work please use the Give a Little website link provided on this page.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

You can also help by staying at Aroha Island and using our facilities.  If you live locally and enjoy walking our trails, and coming for picnics and BBQs, then please consider leaving a donation when you visit.  There is a donation box at our Visitor Centre.

Volunteers

Aroha Island is entirely managed and run by volunteers.  Every year the Aroha volunteers are donating thousands of hours of time, out of which 700 alone go for cleaning the toilets, the showers, and the bathrooms.

However, more help is always needed with maintenance, weed control, gardening etc.  Also, if you have expertise in the fields of ecology, finance, promotion/marketing you may be able to assist our Committee.  If you are able to donate some of your valuable time please contact the managers
