Major Funders

Journeys is possible due to the support over a number of years from our major funders. Generous grants allow us to deliver our high quality programme at no cost to participants. We are able to train and upskill ordinary local women who volunteer, run  a targeted youth leadership programme, and meet all our programme delivery costs.

Valued Supporters

Support from local and national organisations in the form of donations, gear, advice and mentoring has quickly taken Journeys from a good grassroots idea to an exciting organisation that reaches hundreds of Central Otago girls and women. Their ongoing support gives us the ability to be adaptable and the confidence to keep meeting the needs of young women in our community.

From our very beginnings, Central Otago REAP backed us and were our umbrella organisation before we became a charitable trust, and Checkett’s McKay Law helped us with this process at no charge. Bike it Now have provided loan bikes, trailers and van use at no charge. Macpac gave us $5000 of gear to start up our loan library, and Mountain Adventure give us super good rates to keep this topped up, and to support our instructors and leaders. Commercial and Rural Insurance has sponsored our insurance year after year, and Sport NZ got us up and running with their Innovations Fund in 2019.
