Join us/Renew your membership now to make a difference!


We need your help to make the difference we all want to see. Can you offer some time? Maybe you’d enjoy helping at stalls, planning or hosting a local event, running a local social group or joining our committees in Auckland or Wellington? Or perhaps you have writing, administrative, marketing, researching or financial skills you could offer. Some things can be done from home. You might even have a great idea you’d like to get started!

If you are interested in helping out, check our available volunteering opportunities. Contact us, no obligation, to find out more – info@vegetarian.org.nz

Without your financial support, we can’t achieve our goals. We appreciate every donation, no matter how small. Make a donation now.

Join Pathfinder

A KiwiSaver scheme has partnered with us to help make a world of difference. They’re called Pathfinder. They focus on investing ethically and donate 20% of their fees to charities like us when people choose to join them. Check out their approach.
