Volunteering is life changing!

Volunteer Wellington champions and connects people with volunteering across the Wellington region. Our vision is for a strong and connected community and voluntary sector. Our mahi involves providing our community member organisations with skilled and comprehensive support and services so that they retain the strong, effective volunteer workforce necessary to advance their missions and causes. We lead and demonstrate best practice across volunteering. We innovate and adapt to ensure the benefits of volunteering are accessible to all.

Volunteer Wellington relies on grants, donations and volunteers to deliver our services. We are grateful for the generosity of individuals and organisations who support our organisation.

Donations to Volunteer Wellington are used to connect and enrich people's lives and support community and voluntary organisations to reach their full potential. All donations support our mission to build strong, connected and vibrant communities where everyone can thrive.

Regular Giving – Friends of Volunteer Wellington

By becoming a Friend of Volunteer Wellington, you will play a pivotal role in building a strong and connected community and voluntary sector. Regular giving provides Volunteer Wellington with a sustainable income stream to do our good mahi in the community. Your donations will ensure:

  • Volunteering is accessible to all people in the Wellington region.

“Volunteering helped me build confidence and gain more practical skills. Above everything, contributing to the community gave me a sense of belonging and fulfilment that I missed when I was new to NZ. Even though I now work full time, I still look for opportunities to volunteer whenever I can because of this positive impact in my life.” (Volunteer)

  • Community organisations are provided with skilled and comprehensive support and services.

“The membership support you provide is priceless; being able to reach out and seek your support, input and guidance has a huge impact on our organisation” (Local community organisation)

  • The value and profile of volunteering is raised through our advocacy and promotion.

"Volunteers are the glue that holds communities together, and everyone is better off when volunteers, volunteering and mahi aroha are valued. The profile of volunteering is raised through volunteer centres like Volunteer Wellington. Volunteering is visible and championed, by connecting people who want to volunteer to purpose driven community organisations, and helping volunteer managers better engage with volunteers." (National Volunteering organisation)
