Our Corporate Supporters

We warmly acknowledge financial and other support & sponsorship

Secure ongoing funding  means we can provide cultural heritage services to our community and visitors. Our core funding ($49,761 in 2016/17) and accommodation is provided by our local authority, Tasman District Council.
