Together we can open the doors to the Shiloh Creative Life Centre


Shiloh by its very nature is a hub of wellness, providing a home for adults and young people to belong. The name Shiloh means peace, abundance, and a sense of belonging.

For the past several years, all of us at Shiloh Creative Life Centre Charitable Trust have worked diligently to deliver programmes and projects throughout the lockdowns in South Auckland that make an impact on the emotional, physical and mental well-being of individuals. We have been facilitating our programmes in various local venues for hire which has been a temporary and unsustainable option.

Over the next two weeks, we are running a campaign to create this space for all people to BE!

We are fundraising to have a physical central place in South Auckland that will offer:

• a vibrant & thriving community hub

• an environmentally friendly, safe space

• an open art studio

• educational hub

• holistic wellness centre

• a sustainable organic garden

Please support us as we work to create this hub!

Shiloh’s Current Programmes:

• Back 2 Basics - teaching people how to get back 2 basics through hands-on cooking demonstrations on preparing healthy, homecooked meals from seasonal produce and educating them on a healthy body & healthy mind lifestyle

• ART Collective Project – open art spaces for our youth, men, and women that teach a wide range of original art practices to inspire, uplift, heal, create and connect with others

• Women’s Support Circle - on-line support circles for women who are experiencing abuse

WE Give Thanks to ALL   19 April 2022

We are truly humbled and sincerely grateful for everyone who donated to our first crowdfunding campaign, "Shiloh - A Place For All People To BE!" We feel truly blessed by all the support we received over the last month from the preparation of the campaign through to the final day on April 15.

We wish to thank The Funding Network for choosing our trust to be part of a crowdfunding campaign called the Generosity Generator that supported 34 charitable trusts to take part of a huge fundraising campaign to raise funds for their charities. We learned so much from this experience and the manager Tim Pare and communications consultant Anusha Bhana were exceptional and always there with great advice and emotional support all throughout the entire campaign.

We are extremely grateful and want to thank our matchfunding sponsors for their financial support in assisting us to reach our goal.

- Stephanie and Chad Mortimer @ RE/MAX Mid Michigan, Jackson MI

- Steve and Barb Starke @ RE/MAX Rural Urban Realty, Papakura NZ

- Jason Enright @ Project Kitchens, Auckland NZ

We want to say, THANK YOU, to everyone for their generous donations that helped us raise $7891.13. We would have not achieved our goal without your support! We also want to acknowledge and thank Rose McNair from East FM Radio and Ernestina Bonsu Maro from 531 pi Radio for taking the time to interview us and sharing Shiloh's mission throughout their networks!

Last but not least, I want to acknowledge and thank Elaine Poila with all my heart who was by my side throughout this entire campaign assisting me with the marketing and social media posts & videos. I could have not done this without you Elaine! Thank you for being my rock! Much Aroha x

Our goal is to open the doors to Shiloh Creative Life Centre in South Auckland NZ this year and we will keep you posted on our journey towards fulfilling our mission.

With sincere gratitude,

Dee Petit
