Get the numbers down

Help us reduce the number of beach drownings in New Zealand with a donation to Surf Life Saving New Zealand.

ANYONE CAN DROWN BUT NO ONE SHOULD.

Over the last 10 years, fatal drownings at our beaches have been 48% higher per capita than Australia’s – and that’s way too high. With summer fast approaching, now’s the time to get the numbers down.

WILL YOU HELP US GET RESCUE READY?

We need to raise $250,000 to ensure our lifeguards are as well trained as possible. With your generous donation, we can help them prepare so they’re ready to save lives as soon as the patrol season starts. Alongside training, funds raised will also contribute to essential beach safety messaging which plays an important part in educating beach-goers about the dangers that exist in our coastal waters.

Please get on board and help us reduce the number of drownings for all New Zealand. You can choose to donate $40, $60, $80, $100 (or more if you like) using the options below.

GIVE IN MEMORY

A gift in memory of a loved one is a beautiful and thoughtful tribute to their life, and a meaningful expression of love and support. Perhaps they were once a Surf Lifeguard or were rescued by one, or maybe they just loved going to the beach and appreciated the reassurance of the red and yellow patrol flags every summer. Without your help, we would not be able to keep patrols on our beaches and our education, member and club support, research and beach safety programmes running. Simply share the DONATE link with your friends and family, explaining why you would appreciate a donation to SLSNZ in lieu of flowers.

GIVE IN CELEBRATION

If you’re celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or wedding, giving in celebration is a simple and personal way to support the live-saving work of our volunteer Surf Lifeguards. By asking your friends and family to donate to Surf Life Saving New Zealand instead of giving a gift, together you can make a real difference. Simply share the DONATE link on your invite.
