Due to increasing costs and a lack of available funding support we need your help to keep the lights on.
The New Zealand Traditional Boat Building School is a volunteer run charitable trust started in 2005 that has been providing Education, Skills development, Personal growth, Youth development, Community support and plays an active part in maintaining New Zealand's valuable maritime history.
Due to increasing costs, Covid 19 and a lack of available support from other funding sources this year we are struggling to survive. We need in excess of $20,000 opex per year just to keep the doors open and the lights on. Although we charge for our courses and all of our day to day operations are provided by volunteers we simply can't generate enough income from this to survive.
Help us to continue the good work we do in the community each year.
The New Zealand Traditional Boat Building School provides tuition, skills development, community help and active involvement in maintaining New Zealand's Maritime heritage.
