Ponsonby News is all about the community and supporting local businesses, where help is needed.

Ponsonby, Auckland

Published in Ponsonby since 1989 and read around the world, Ponsonby News is the living, breathing heart of the iconic inner central suburb.

Dedicated to representing the community and uplifting local businesses, Ponsonby News is a free, monthly community publication helping locals – and those abroad - keep in touch with our vibrant neighbourhood. However, due to the current economic climate, it’s our turn to ask for help from our readers, advertisers and supporters.

We rely on advertising to fund what we do, and with marketing budgets being slashed across many industries our ad spend has dropped dramatically. This has given us many sleepless nights and caused untold stress, as we try our utmost to keep our much-loved heritage publication afloat.

Over the years we have showcased the best of Ponsonby and the inner central suburbs around us and seen fledgling businesses gain nationwide success, now we are seeking your support so we can continue to do so for many years to come.

Use of funds

Your support will help us keep Ponsonby News in print, so our many readers can still pick up a copy of their local publication and read about the best that the suburb has to offer. Print bills are extremely high, and in this area we need all of the help we can get.

We are also exploring the option of taking our publication more online so require funds to spend on significantly updating our website in order to make it fully functional and user-friendly for our legions of readers.

Use of funds

Helping us survive and we are considering going online only and we need funds to be spent on updating our website and paying our print bills.

The current economic situation has been dire for so many. Ponsonby News is an integral part of our community and we value the dedication it has given, both to local people and business. The support received from Martin and including loyalty we've garnered from our neighbourhood is in part due to Ponsonby News and their commitment to all of us. Thank you Martin we support you as well! Laura & the team at Designer Rugs xx
