Mitre 10 Sponsorships
We're proudly supporting Kiwis and their communities.
Since 1991, Mitre 10 has supported the Neurological Foundation – the country’s principal non-profit organisation dedicated to funding research into disorders of the brain and nervous system.
Each year Mitre 10 makes possible the Neurological Foundation’s Annual Appeal which is the organisation’s key fundraising drive. This support is much needed as about 98% of the Foundation’s funds come from donations and bequests from New Zealanders.
With one in five New Zealanders affected by a brain disorder in their lifetime, Mitre 10 believes continuing to search for answers to these neurological issues is crucial. Investing in a healthy future is a valuable way to give back to our customers and the communities throughout New Zealand that have supported our business for years.
Mitre 10 has been supporting the Department of Conservation’s (DOC) Takahē Recovery Programme since 2005. The takahē is an iconic New Zealand species that is critically endangered and needs ongoing protection.
As a proudly New Zealand owned and operated company, we are committed to helping DOC save this bird to ensure it remains a part of our culture for future generations of New Zealander’s, as we believe it is a part of what makes New Zealand unique.
Over the years Mitre 10 has helped grow the takahē population through helping DOC upgrade breeding units, construct new holding pens and enclosures, purchase incubators, develop vaccination and disease risk screening programmes, improve monitoring and control of predators and move takahē to safe predator free islands.
Mitre 10 is a category sponsor of the Community of the Year Award, as part of the New Zealander of the Year Awards.
The Mitre 10 Community of the Year Award acknowledges groups or organisations working together to build better communities, and serves as recognition and a thank you for the dedication, fellowship and partnership that locally implemented activities have created leading to a positive, sustainable, environmental, economic or social benefit to the community.
As a locally owned and operated business, Mitre 10 has strong roots in communities nationwide and believes it is important to give back to the communities that have supported us through the years.
At Mitre 10 we’re proud supporters of rugby. We love what it means to Kiwis, and believe that rugby shares many of the traits we value: commitment, passion, satisfaction in getting the job done, a sense of community, and a large dose of Kiwi-ness.
Being 100% New Zealand owned and operated, we’re staunch supporters of the country’s provincial teams. This made it an easy decision to support the game at this level, and to become the first sponsor of all four major fifteens provincial rugby competitions in New Zealand:
By backing these competitions we plan to do our bit to help the game get stronger and provide a platform for the finest players to emerge, simply because we’re from here!
