Support Us


There are a number of ways you can support ECO. One of the most important of which is by getting behind the issues we are working on. Efforts by individuals raising their concerns with MPs, through letters to newspaper editors, by ringing talkback radio, writing submissions are vitally important to improving the way the environment is treated. Even making other people aware of issues is important. Take a look at the ECO News page to see some of the issues we are working on.

We need support to enable us to remain independently funded and autonomous – we are a non-profit organisation and we rely on our supporters to contribute funds to cover our running costs. ECO’s campaigns are run by committed unpaid workers with decades of collective experience and in-depth knowledge of the issues. See below to find out you can financially support ECO. As well as financial support ECO needs professional services and goods, information on issues in your area, publicity and volunteer workers.

By becoming a ‘Friend of ECO’ you will:

  • Help ensure that there is a strong New Zealand advocate for the environment;
  • Receive up-to-date information so you can participate in protecting the environment, including ECO’s quarterly newsletter ECOlink;
  • Receive invitations to conferences and seminars;
  • Enable ECO to develop and realise its long-term environmental goals.
