It is impossible to even contemplate a project like our new Heritage Centre without the generous support of you - our donors, and we do hope you will continue to support and assist, and persuade your friends and family to donate too.  Please sign up for our newsletter so that you can track what your donations are doing for us.

However, before we secured one cent of your donations, we had the incredibly generous support of Brendon Ford and his team at Provoke Solutions and in partnership with Kentico - they have generously donated hours of time and expertise to our web site and those technological features that allow you to follow us on Facebook, and to safely make your own contribution.  Everyone on the Rakiura Heritage & Information Centre working committee wish to acknowledge this and thank them all sincerely for their valuable input.

Similarly, we are indebted to Opus Architecture and to that talented team headed by Julian O'Sullivan.  They have not only designed our beautiful building to our very exacting specifications, but have been very generous about the manner in which they have achieved results to date.

We are determined that the maximum number of dollars possible in our funds be spent on the actual building of this wonderful asset - it is due to our wonderful sponsors and their donated time that we can do as well as we are doing so far.  If you are aware of any other corporate sponsors, please encourage them to contact us too - we are only too happy to spread the word about such generosity given with such high levels of expertise.
