Become a Brook Sanctuary supporter – in doing so you help to build and maintain sustainable Sanctuary operations for the enjoyment of current and future generations. The Sanctuary receives around one third of its operating budget each year from our strategic partners listed at the bottom of this page. Additionally, the Sanctuary charges admission fees, Nelson/Tasman residents pay less than visitors from elsewhere, this revenue supplements that from our strategic partners and is reinvested back into the Sanctuary operations.
We also receive support from the business community in the form of corporate sponsorships and the Brook Business Club programme.
Funding from individuals through our supporter programme, and the ‘Friends of the Brook’ regular donor programme is just as important for raising Sanctuary operational funds.
There has never been a better time to sign up as a Sanctuary supporter!
Thanks to the generosity of a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous, every new supporter sign-up (and renewal) between 1 March and 30 June 2021 will be matched $ for $ up to a maximum of $50,000 from the benefactor.
