Are you thinking about Christmas already? We are!

We have 40+ venues generating funds which we will use to support local charitable organisations in the Eastern Bay. However, we need an appropriate vehicle to help us collect and restock these venues so that they can continue to raise this money for the community.

Wow what a whirlwind of activity...and the week's not done yet.

The last 2 days has been a bit crazy unloading stock, taking inventory and filling our Hyundai Sante Fe to do deliveries, but we got it done with no issues other than realising we need to purchase a more appropriate vehicle.

Yesterday TENT took over a successful business and we are transitioning it into a social enterprise. The money raised from this business will go directly into helping local charitable groups.

Support our Objectives

Join our quest to build a social enterprise that will benefit EBOP charities.

We are a registered non-profit that acts as an umbrella organisation to provide support services to a variety of community focused causes and projects by using our skills, experiences and resources to assist charitable organisations and causes in our region. 

Funds raised in this campaign will go towards securing an established successful business to transition into a social enterprise. If we are unsuccessful in purchasing the business on offer, funds will be used to enhance and expand our support services to local charitable organisations.

With your help, we will be in a position to strengthen and increase support to those worthy organisations that are doing great work in our communities.

100% of the profits from this Social Enterprise will go back to the community.

Waste Not Want Not is a local food rescue organisation established in the Whakatane community. 

The goal is simple…to create a more sustainable community by rescuing good fresh quality food and redistributing it to community members and organisations. 

The intent of this project is to collaborate with local businesses and organisations to rescue food and redistribute it on a weekly basis from a central location.  It is also an objective of this initiative to reduce plastic waste and encourage the use of alternatives where possible.

TENT promotes volunteering in the Eastern Bay of Plenty by offering local organisations the opportunity to source local volunteers as well as providing support in the development of customised programmes that build capacity and sustainability.

TENT reaches out to our young people by encouraging the next generation of volunteers to get involved with their community through projects and events that offer transferable skills which support future employment opportunities.

TENT aims to help community organisations, and the economic development of the district, by supporting existing projects and events and creating new opportunities. By collaborating with businesses and charitable organisations we will help provide opportunities for public awareness, sustainable fundraising and community cohesion.
