Partnerships - the key to a brighter future for Tauranga city

We have partnered with the Tauranga City Council to manage the Te Manawataki o Te Papa Fund.

Te Manawataki o Te Papa is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reinvigorate Tauranga and create a space where people can connect, as they did generations ago. 

We look forward to having you join this exciting journey with us. Together, we can revitalise the heart of our city centre.

If you'd like to donate, the Te Manawataki o Te Papa Fund has been set up for this purpose.
