Be part of our work
We can’t do it without your help.
The Book Council is the strongest voice of advocacy for books and reading in New Zealand. We collaborate with other Kiwi organisations to raise the profile of books; we speak on behalf of readers in the media; we mount reading campaigns and offer a range of reading programmes to enrich the lives of Kiwi communities.
The vision and generosity of our supporters enables us to build on our successes and expand our advocacy work. It is your support that enables us to be the best and most effective organisation we can be.
There are a number of ways you can support our efforts:
We greatly appreciate all donations, big or small. Donations of $5 or more are tax deductible.
Join our Book Council Friends and Patrons Programme
Regularly support us, and help us nurture and support New Zealand writers and readers.
Talk to us about how your company can get involved through cash or in-kind donations and help us create new initiatives and programmes in more Kiwi communities. Find out what unique staff and customer engagement opportunities we can provide for you!
Payroll Giving is one of the easiest methods of giving to charity as it allows employees to donate each payday as a pre-tax deduction.
No matter how big or small, a bequest is one of the most significant gifts you can make. Leave a lasting legacy, and help us support New Zealand’s readers now and for the future.
