Donations & Bequests

The Summit Road Society is run by volunteers and is dependent on membership subscriptions, grants donations and bequests to carry out its work and to manage our two Port Hills Reserves.

Over the years we have had some very generous donations and bequests, including, in the mid-1990s, sufficient funds to enable us to buy the land that now forms Ohinetahi Reserve.

If you value the Port Hills and support the work of the Summit Road Society and its many hard-working volunteers, please consider:

• Making a donation:
However small, all donations are appreciated and go towards supporting our work and our volunteers.
• Making a bequest:
Talk to your solicitor about including us in your will.

Donations and bequests can be made to either the Summit Road Society or the Harry Ell Summit Road Society Memorial Trust, which was set up to accumulate funds to acquire more land on the Port Hills and to provide funding towards the management of existing publicly accessible land. For more information on the trust see: Harry Ell Trust.
