Thanks to the generosity of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, BNZ and Genesis Energy, there may be funding available to support you with these course fees. Funding is offered on a case-by-case basis, with criteria, for those who have made reasonable efforts to raise as much as possible (via professional development, personal savings/contribution, talking with your rūnanga, fundraising, etc). We do not want cost to prevent any person from participating.
The trick is to start planning now, so that you can show you have made reasonable efforts to raise funding. If fees are a barrier, please see this Outward Bound page, which has a really effective three-step guide to fundraising for your course.
Karawhiua – give it heaps!
Grants are awarded to those applicants who can demonstrate their commitment to the course by providing evidence of independent fundraising initiatives. There are only a limited number of grants available, and funding is reserved for those who have made reasonable efforts to raise as much as possible.
Below are some ideas for securing funding, or for more inspiration head to the Outward Bound website, which has a really effective three-step guide to fundraising for your course.
We are happy to write a letter to support your application, e.g. confirming your placement, application or intention to attend Aoraki Bound. To organise this, email: email@example.com
When someone has agreed to fund part of your course, ensure you get them to pay Aoraki Bound directly.
Funding is limited, so the more you can access through other sources, the more people we can assist.
Once you’ve made a genuine fundraising attempt then you will need to talk to the Aoraki Bound team and finalise your funding options. No funding is issued to someone who has not been contact with the Aoraki Bound team.
Any funding from the Aoraki Bound team will not include travel, gear, medical costs or insurance.
In any case, we strongly suggest that you put a plan together, and then contact Aoraki Bound to discuss the plan.
