You Can Donate to NTHT!

We welcome ALL financial Donations and Bequests

This is in response to people asking us, "but what can I do to help the housing crisis?"


Each 4-8 home development by NTHT will cost at least $1 million. 


We have achieved most of our building to date thanks to a combination of philanthropic and government capital grants, conventional mortgages, government rent subsidies, and some community contributions.  


NTHT, as a charitable trust (a non-profit, or "profit for purpose" organisation), intends to operate all properties it owns in perpetuity for the purpose of affordable/social housing. If the NTHT Board, on occasion, decides to sell a house, the proceeds will always be reinvested to provide more housing for people in need.

It is easy to make a donation to Nelson Tasman Housing Trust (Registered Charity # CC21439):

  • Contribute via online banking to our ASB account # 12-3165-0249879-51
  • Please put "donation" in the reference line, and send an email to the NTHT Director, so we can thank you and send a receipt. Your donation is tax-deductible.

For Bequests:


The following wording is only a guide and NTHT recommends you consult your solicitor.
