How can you help?

With no ratepayer funding requested from TDC, it is up to the Motueka community and potential pool users to raise the money required. The fundraising committee is seeking a good proportion of the money from national funding agencies, but those agencies will be happy to be involved only after they see community effort getting part-way to the target.

Our local goal is to reach at least $400,000 by autumn 2018, with at least $200,000 of that coming from business and individual donations and fundraising events; and the remainder from naming rights sponsorship and in-kind service contributions.

The committee is working toward this goal through several ways, including:

  • requests for donations from local businesses and citizens
  • a broad variety of large and small fundraising events, raffles etc.
  • an online 'Givealittle' campaign for smaller donations by people, including Motueka folk who are living elsewhere in the world and want to support their 'home' town
  • donations from local construction and service businesses for work 'in kind' as part of the planning and construction stages to cut costs.

All donations of $100 or more will lead to the donor's name being displayed on a donor recognition board inside the pool. There are five categories of donation levels:   $100 - $500, $500 - $1,000, $1,000 - $5,000, $5,000 - $10,000, and $10,000 or more.

Note that Good Sports Motueka is a registered charity, so all donations are eligible for a 33% tax rebate.
