Our Sponsors & Partners

Hillary Outdoors has the generous support of sponsors and other partners who help in a variety of ways to secure our future and the benefits our programmes and events provide young New Zealanders.




Commercial Sponsorship
We have the support of commercial sponsorship; some help with the cost of running our Events and providing prizes, some directly subsidise school students to attend our programmes by sponsoring Hillary Step Scholarships through our Community Sponsorship Programme and others ensure our buildings, equipment and vehicles are maintained.

Funding Partners
We have the support of funding partners, including Pub Charity, who contribute by subsidising students to attend Hillary Outdoors programmes or paying for Hillary Outdoors maintenance costs, or both. These funding partners are charitable entities that distribute funds to applicants that meet their strict criteria. Sometimes these funding partners are gaming trusts or publicly owned businesses who promote responsible selling of alcohol etc and helping Hillary Outdoors is part of their commitment of giving back to the community.


Become a Partner or Sponsor
We always welcome additional sponsors and funding partners and provide a range of benefits to both. If you are interested in donating to or sponsoring Hillary Outdoors, please get in touch so that we can help direct you to the most relevant information.

All sponsorship and funding enquiries should be directed to: Graham Seatter 09 446 2051

Giving thanks

We are delighted to feature one of our Funding Partners or Commercial Sponsors every couple of months as a way of highlighting their good work and thanking them for their support. Take a look below at our current “Giving thanks” feature…

Thanks Torpedo7!


We are very grateful for the continued support from our sponsor, Torpedo7. Since 2015, Torpedo7 has been supporting Hillary Outdoors in its endeavours to help students in challenging financial circumstances participate in our programmes. Fundraising efforts by Torpedo7 have enabled young people, who may not otherwise be able to afford a Hillary Outdoors experience, to build skills for life; including perseverance, resilience, leadership, improved communication and teamwork.

Fundraising in Torpedo7 stores and via the Torpedo7 website has involved asking if customers would like to make a donation with their purchase and since this initiative has been underway, a few successful fundraising campaigns have seen students from Auckland Girls’ Grammar School, Papatoetoe and Melville High Schools, Taupo-nui-a-Tia and Mt Aspiring Colleges benefit by attending our programmes. Over the past year every school that attends Hillary Outdoors has also been extended a generous offer of discounted Torpedo7 branded merchandise to help them make the clothing and gear needed for participating in our programmes more affordable.

The partnership between Hillary Outdoors and Torpedo7 has now broadened to include Torpedo7 sponsorship of our successful Events Programme.  We are excited about exploring how we can grow these popular multi-sport events for secondary school students even further with the support of Torpedo7. Thanks Torpedo7
