Each year, Spring into Tawa is proud to support local groups and organisations in our community. Spring into Tawa, at it's heart, is about community and so we look to support a strong and connected community.
We do this by providing local groups and organisations an opportunity to have a stall at the event to raise money and awareness for their cause. We have kept the price of a community stall at the same low rate for four years now to enable as many groups as possible to be at the festival.
Donations to local causes
In addition, each year Spring into Tawa tries to make a donation to other local causes or events. Up until and including 2016, a small donation was made from the surplus money from Spring into Tawa to the Tawa Community Light Party. In 2017, we were able to donate $1,000 to the Tawa Community Patrol.
In 2018, we made a donation to the Tawa Youth and Families Trust from surplus funds from the event. With the support of the Porirua Club and Xtreme X, we were able to also make donations to Menzshed Tawa and the Tawa Community Patrol.
2019 Local Causes - who should we support?
We would like to hear from the community who we should support through the event this year. During June and July, we will be running polls on our Facebook page to gather ideas of worthy local causes to support and then to decide which of all the worthy nominated causes we should support.
