Get Involved!


The Nelson Women's Centre only exists because of the ongoing efforts of many people like you (literally hundreds of women over more than 30 years).

 

Ways you can help

 

Annual Membership Subscription

By paying $10 per year you are able to say "I am a member of the Nelson Women's Centre." Make your cheque out to Nelson Women's Support Inc and post to 44 Trafalgar St. Nelson 7010. You can also pay in cash, or online into our bank account number:

03-1355-0736361-00

 

Donations

Give more financially, if you are able to. We also happily accept donations of women's and children's clothing and small household goods (clean, tidy, in good repair), which we sell from our Op Shop. Or if you have food to donate (fresh, freezable or tinned), we can then pass it on to many women and families in need.

 

You can also donate on our Givealittle page.

 

Daytime Volunteers

We need help with the daily running of the Centre. Talk with our Coordinators about what you are interested in doing. Common tasks include typing minutes, photocopying, answering telephones, also Op Shop sorting, shopping for supplies, lawn-mowing, weeding and pruning, painting, and of course help with planning and running fundraisers!

 

Join the Women's Centre Governing Collective

We welcome new Collective members, of all ages and backgrounds. Qualities we seek in new Governing Collective members: a feminist awareness, networking skills in order to promote the Women's Centre, energy to help with marketing and fundraising, employer knowledge and skills. Email the Centre Coordinator to find out more.

 

We are intentionally organised as a Collective because we value non-hierarchical working relationships, each member having a role and a real voice, all fully participating in decision-making.

 

Bequests

When you are making or revising your will, please consider naming the Nelson Women's Centre as a beneficiary. In that way, your resources will help us keep this place running, for the good of all women in Nelson and Tasman.
