Raising funds to build a Community House for the Upper Clutha. Your contribution will be added to funds already pledged from local trusts.
The Wanaka Community House Charitable Trust has been working on getting a facility built for many years. A Community House is a centre for local services and organisations to use at an affordable price.
These facilities are proved to strengthen relationships between service providers and promote positive social wellbeing for the whole community. We are raising funds for building an energy efficient building so that ongoing running costs will be kept low for tenants.
We aim to have the facility open in mid 2019 and at the moment - interest indicates it will be full on opening day!
More about us
The Wanaka Community House Charitable Trust is building a facility in Wanaka for the benefit of the people of the Upper Clutha.
A Community House is a centre for local services, organisations, government services, clubs and the general public. Such a facility strengthens relationships between providers and can help advocate for increased community services. We are raising money to build a new facility in Wanaka.
The building is estimated to cost $3.8 million.To date we have raised $2.1M, so need to raise just over a third of the cost. Every little donation helps us to reach our goal.
Thanks for your support.
