Our patrons play an important role in the on-going success of NZ Sculpture OnShore, and ultimately the work of Women’s Refuge New Zealand. They are a group of dynamic people who whole-heartedly support one of the country’s pre-eminent and longest-running outdoor sculpture exhibitions.

Since its inception, New Zealand Sculpture OnShore has enabled the Friends of Women’s Refuges Trust to donate over NZ$ 2.2 million to help the victims of domestic violence in New Zealand.

Patronage is a visible and very much appreciated way of supporting both New Zealand artists and Women’s Refuge New Zealand.

There are three levels of support; each providing significant benefits:

Bronze (one person), Silver, Gold, Platinum.
Alternatively, you can support the exhibition by becoming a Contributor. 

If you are interested in becoming a patron, please fill in the form below.
