  • COVID-19 - Membership Services is closed

    Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga members are our financial and moral lifeblood and your support of our work through membership and donations is crucial. Now, more than ever, we need your support. 

    The COVID-19 pandemic is severely impacting our operations (read more information here), and this includes our ability to process membership applications and renewals and provide supporter services.  Long term office closures are affecting our administration, so we regret to advise that we cannot currently process membership applications or renewals.  While we will do all we can to bring this service back to you as soon as possible, please bear with us as we adapt to this changeable and unpredictable situation. We continue to follow government advice as it is received. 

    When our ability to resume membership administration is restored, we’ll advise through our electronic mail channels and website. If you have not provided us with your email address or signed up to our monthly newsletter Heritage this Month, please just follow this link to provide your name and email address.  Read our Privacy Policy

  • Donations

    Re-roofing at Te Waimate Mission

    Our supporters, donors and everyday people just like you have helped us undertake more programmes in heritage conservation than we might otherwise be able to do.  There's still much to be done, and we can't do it alone.  Protecting our historic places is the responsibility of us all, so please consider supporting us today with a donation.

  • Current appeals

    Thames School of Mines

    There's always so much more to do to protect New Zealand's heritage than we can do alone.  Find out about the projects that are our current priorities and urgently need your help.

  • How you've helped

    It is because of the generosity of our supporters that we have been able to complete projects such as the ones featured in these videos. They aim to show how your donations have been put to work and what has been achieved as a result.

  • Leave a legacy

    Future thinking child

    By making provision in your will (often referred to as leaving a bequest) for Heritage New Zealand - you can provide a lasting gift for our nation’s heritage, a gift that will last forever.

  • Corporate support

    Auckland Harbour

    While we are the leading heritage agency in New Zealand and a trusted advisor to central government, Heritage New Zealand is more than just an organisation.  Consider aligning your own culture with our philosophy of winning positive outcomes for heritage through intelligent and creative solutions.

  • Our supporters

    Heritage New Zealand would like to thank our funding partners, corporate friends and sponsors for their support. They are helping to protect the past for future generations to enjoy.

    Heritage New Zealand welcomes enquiries from both members and non-members who are interested in offering their services on a voluntary basis.
