The Wellington Resilience Fund

Nikau has established the “Wellington Resilience Fund” to build a dedicated pot of funding to provide grants for community resilience with a focus on connectedness and preparedness for emergencies. This year the focus is on providing funding for emergency equipment like water tanks and solar charged power banks to schools and community centres. We are also keen to support anything that brings people in communities together so they are getting to know one another e.g. community gardens, predator-free activities.

National and local governments have a role to play here but their funding is limited to major infrastructure continuity projects. That is why we have set a campaign target of $100,000 for the fund and have developed a cause-related marketing opportunity for you that will put smiles on the faces of your family, friends and colleagues as well as helping them get prepared at work, or at home.

The Wellington Resilience Bar

In partnership with the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) and the Wellington Chocolate Factory, we present the Wellington Resilience Bar. A delicious, ethical bean-to-bar salted caramel chocolate bar that will be a welcome addition to any home or work emergency kit. A proportion of the sale price of each bar is donated directly into the Resilience Fund. It will go on sale in June each year when WREMO are reminding businesses and householders across the region to fit out their emergency kits. A proportion of the sale of each bar goes into the Resilience Fund.
