General donations

Personal donations and ongoing support are a major component in allowing our organisation to run the programmes we do and impact the lives of young people. You can sponsor some gear for a Tongariro trip, personally support one of our staff members, help fund an event, or just provide a general donation to help fulfil the current need.

You can do this by:

We are registered with the Charities Commission, so If you would like a tax receipt at the end of the financial year please make sure you email us to let us know your name and address details so that we can send you one.


We are always looking for enthusiastic people to volunteer.  Join our team of volunteers! Opportunities range from helping out at one off events or coaching a sports team through to becoming involved in our regular programmes with young people. We also welcome volunteers who have skills in the office and can help to make Ignite run, or those with experience who may want to consider a position on our Board.


Every year we take on interns to help develop them in the area of youth development and leadership. This can be as a placement whilst studying youth development with organisations such as Praxis or Weltec, a gap year experience, or maybe something you just have a passion to learn more about or get involved in. Please contact us if you are interested.  We also offer an internship programme through referrals from WINZ and Youth Inspire - see our Sport Plus page for more information on this programme.
