Become a sustaining donor

Could you spend $10 p/month to support our work?

Making a regular donation to us is one of the most helpful ways of supporting our work, as it gives us some stability of income. We are an entirely not for profit group, and we rely on the contributions of others who want to help to protect our beautiful corner from mining!

Email to discuss, or set it up today (Coromandel Watchdog of Hauraki # 38-9006-0733863-00, reference: donor)

General donations are always GREATLY appreciated too, obviously! They can be made into the same account number, or via our givealittle page.

The more financial members we have the more likely we are to get funding for our legal costs that arise from this initiative, the fight to ensure mining is prohibited in the coastal areas and outstanding natural landscapes of Coromandel Peninsula and range, the Hauraki… so please encourage your friends and family to join too!
