Otorohanga Charitable Trust Inc

We would like you to become a member of our charitable trust, it is small with a dedicated team of enthusiastic trustees and we are focused on growing our trust and we are always looking for help with that.

We support the community by:

  • Providing opportunities for people of the Otorohanga district,   and
  • To undertake any charitable activities


And some of our recent and current activities, have been donations to:

  • The proposed Beattie home extension wing – this is the big development in Otorohanga at the moment - nine extra rooms for care of the elderly so that more people can return to their district to be near family.
  • Currently we are supporting children in arts and sports and are also supporting youth driver training so that young people can legally drive themselves to work opportunities.


We have pleasure in sponsoring the Otorohanga Top Apprentice Award – this year, Sandy Katipa-Maikuku, and last year the trust donated $5000 to the Otorohanga Volunteer Fire Brigade toward the purchase of the new 4wd quick response vehicle.

Although the trust has enjoyed good growth from our investment strategy, it is still small and needs to grow more now and in the future. We need your help:

  • Become a member – annual subscription ($30) or life membership ($300).
  • Donation or corporate membership.
  • Make a bequeath via your will for lasting benefit to the community.


We also would welcome any opportunities for publicity and of course always welcome applications to help individuals or organisations in terms of charitable donation.
