Help us help the environment and the community,
become a member or financial supporter today
On behalf of the Waikato Environment Centre, Pamela and I want to thank you for your contribution to the centre’s work and to the positive change that we are making together. The last couple of years has seen considerable growth at the centre and we are proud of what we have achieved in collaboration with you.
Kaivolution has grown beyond expectation and has rescued over 100 tonnes of food since its inception. Our ethical E-waste recycling service has taken off, and people are bringing in their e-waste by the boot load – it’s fantastic. Our sustainable living conversations are proving to be a hit, creating engaged communities of learners throughout the city. And this is just a fraction of the work we do.
I know we all agree that our natural environment needs protecting, preserving and enhancing – let’s face it humanity depends on it. There is so much work that we can do together – the possibilities are endless. However, like many social change organisations we are reliant on the generosity of the community and the generosity of people like you. We need you to help us sustain and develop the work we are doing and to achieve our vision of Healthy Environments Supported by Thriving Communities.
We invite you to join us in our mission by becoming a member and/or financially contributing supporter of the Waikato Environment Centre – the hub of sustainable action in the Waikato. Just a little from a bunch of us can go a long way. With a bustling and busy centre and lots of ways to engage, we believe now is a good time to sign up, become a member and empower the centre to do more with the community. We have several membership options from as little as $15 per year, and also invite you to consider becoming a regular giver. Every dollar you give is a valuable contribution.
As a WEC member or regular giver you will be supporting all our activities, services and programmes. As a valued member you will receive:
- Notification of regional events and issues
- Discounts on training and workshops
- Priority registration for events
- Discounts in our Sustainable Living Shop
- Invitations to special celebrations
- Promotional opportunities for businesses
- Discounted use of facilities for groups
- Exhibitor discounts at the EnviroExpo
- Voting rights at our AGM
Over the next year we have some exciting initiatives planned, including, just quietly, maybe new premises for Kaivolution and E-Waste. Your financial support has contributed to our success so far and we hope you choose to continue to support us into the future as we continue to create change towards healthy environments and thriving communities.
If for any reason you are unable to support us financially, then please remember that every positive action you take makes a difference, so please consider donating your skills by volunteering, engaging with one of the many groups we support, or shopping with us. Working together, communities really can make a difference and WEC is here to support you all the way.
