Who profits from Spring into Tawa?
Spring into Tawa is run by the Tawa Residents’ Association as a not-for-profit event. Stallholder fees go towards the costs of running the event – including closing the road, advertising, rubbish bins, generators, portable toilets and stage and sound equipment. If the event does make a surplus this is donated to a local community group or organisation.
In 2018, we are proud to support the Tawa Youth and Families Trust, the Tawa Community Patrol and Tawa Menzshed.
How is Spring into Tawa funded?
Spring into Tawa is funded by stallholder fees, sponsorship and grants. We apply to local organisations for grants. The 2018 event will be funded with the generous support of grants from the Tawa Community Board, the Hutt Mana Community Trust, the Wellington City Council Events Fund and sponsorship from One Agency - Tamsin Davidson, Speedy Signs, The Borough and Digital Tree Design.
