Sharing our special part of the world with visitors is a great passion of the Queenstown community. It’s our driving force, but we understand it comes with responsibility. A responsibility to protect, regenerate, and restore the environment that makes it all possible.
Love Queenstown provides an opportunity for our industry to come together, leave a legacy we can be proud of, and support our journey to a thriving future.
Read on for three key ways, and three key reasons, for your business to get behind Love Queenstown – right here and now.
Support Love Queenstown by introducing it to your people. Display posters and donation cards in store. Or use your online presence to connect your customers with opportunities to donate, lend a hand, or invest in our future. We have a suite of print and digital assets available for you to use – find them on our Business Support page or contact us for custom orders.
Show your love with a charitable donation as and when you can, or keep it going with a donation per ticket, activity or experience sold. Every dollar goes back to protecting and regenerating the environment that gives us so much.
By supporting Love Queenstown, you’re supporting a network of organisations on the ground who lead local climate, conservation and biodiversity action in a tangible and meaningful way.
All business donations over $5NZD are eligible for a charitable tax benefit.
Suggest a voluntary donation at the point of sale or point of booking, make the first move and include a donation in the fixed price of your offering, or collect funds in lieu of tips or booking bonuses.
It’s a powerful way to communicate your values and invites your guests to do their bit, too.
Supporting Love Queenstown will help to share your businesses’ values with your audience and your community. You'll be leaving a legacy you can be proud of and helping to inspire change.
Love Queenstown funds climate action exclusively within our region, so you know your support goes directly back to protecting the place you love. We pool our funds for collective impact, so no matter how big or small your donation is, we have the capacity to drive impact, at scale. No portion of your funding supports Love Queenstown's operational expenses either. Every bit of your contribution goes to where it’s needed most.
20% of all funds raised will be invested in a local endowment fund, enabling long-term, substantial funding opportunities. So, whilst we're driving action right here and now, we're also creating good for generations to come.
