To save one life, the Auckland & Coromandel Westpac Rescue Helicopter needs $4,500 of community funding. Alone, it may seem like a lot, but when people come together to sponsor a mission, it costs very little to save one life.
Why not become a Mission Sponsor?
From as little as $25 a month, you along with fourteen other kind-hearted Kiwis can help save the life of one person.
As a Mission Sponsor, you have the opportunity to get a group of fifteen together, or we'll match you with like-minded individuals from your community.
On receipt of your first monthly payment of $25 a month or more, you will receive a special certificate detailing the mission you have helped sponsor with a thank you letter from a crew member involved with your mission.
Where possible, one of the crew will be in touch to let you know how the patient is doing.
As a Mission Sponsor you will also be invited to an Open Day where you can see the crew in action and meet other Mission Sponsors just like you.
If you get a group of fifteen people together, the crew will come to meet you all, either at base or we'll come to you. Conditions apply - refer below.
We rely on people like you to help us save lives. Sponsoring a rescue mission means you will contribute funds directly to a specific mission flown by one of our helicopters, potentially saving someone's life.
