How you can help

Paradise Trust is Not-for Profit and requires your generosity to continue maintaining the 300 acre historic property for future generations to enjoy.  


We have made donating easy for you, just click on the link and follow the steps.

Current projects requiring additional funds are:

  • Extending our trapping programme. We are in need of 65 more traps to cover the whole property. To date, with your help, we now have 75 traps covering 150 acres. Each trap costs $80 and goes along way towards saving our threatened long tailed bats and native bird life.
  • Saving our historic Red Barn.  30k has been quoted for urgent repairs to save the barn. This is a listed building with NZ Historic Places Trust. 
  • Structural repairs to Big Cottage. We are currently in the process of having the building assessed to determine what and how this lovely family favorite can be saved for future generations to come. Any donations towards the costs involved would be gratefully received.

Or you can always remember us in your will by making a bequest

It goes without saying that our success to date could not have been achieved without a generous bunch of people who are willing to share their time and talent to preserving Paradise for future generations. Paradise advertises for volunteers through Help Exchange but you can always contact us directly by sending an email.
