Support our work

Coastguard is the charity saving lives at sea – but we simply can’t save lives without your support.

In the Northern region, Coastguard covers from Thames, across to Kawhia and up the coast to the Far North. We have strategically located rescue vessels, comprehensive marine VHF coverage and over 1,000 dedicated volunteers who help keep kiwis safe out on the water, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We rely on support from individual donations, business partners, local government and philanthropic organisations to continue our vital service. Your support makes a huge difference to us and our volunteers – so however you choose to get involved, you can feel good knowing your donation will help us save lives at sea.
