NZSAS members and their families make a massive contribution to our national security.The NZSAS Trust is your opportunity to give back.
Since 1955 the NZSAS has been charged with protecting our nation. As special forces they are the elite of New Zealand Defence Force Units.
They and their families make immense personal sacrifices – mental, social and sometimes physical – to protect everyday New Zealanders like you.
The NZSAS Trust exists to support these men and women and their families.

NZSAS members and their families make a massive contribution to our national security.
The NZSAS Trust returns the favour, ensuring past and present NZSAS members and their families have the resources they need to thrive – including welfare and financial assistance for further education and vocational training.
But we need your help. You can directly support the NZSAS by making a donation or bequest to the NZSAS Trust.
The NZSAS Trust is a tax-registered charitable trust, established in 2004 to look after those who are actively serving or were previously posted to the 1st New Zealand Special Air Service Regiment, including their immediate families.
It also includes any person who has served in the Long Range Desert Group, Special Operations Executive and Z Special Unit.
Our objectives are to:
- Support families of SAS soldiers who have been killed or otherwise impacted in the performance of their duties
- Support ex-members into new employment
- Support and provide welfare or financial assistance to maintain a reasonable quality of life
- Fund formal education or vocational training for our ex-service members and their families
- Provide financial support for those who fall on hard times
