Making a Donation

Te Mata Park is the jewel in Hawke’s Bay’s crown. Our Giant is a dominant masterpiece; a landmark with outstanding geological features, unique flora and fauna, and deep spiritual and cultural significance to everyone in our community.

As kaitiaki (guardians) of this treasured land, the Park Trustees are taking proactive steps in ensuring that Te Mata Park is enhanced, expanded and protected, for everyone in our community to enjoy.

Together with our community, we invite you to be part of this journey. Te Mata Park will be a testament to the generosity of many. We hope you will consider being part of our many projects.
