Thank you for choosing to support the Tongariro Memorial Fund. Your donation will help keep alive the legacy to four national park rangers: William Cooper, Keith Blumhardt, Derek White, Marie Williams, and pilot, Douglas McKenzie who died in a helicopter crash in December 1982 – now and forever.
The tragedy touched the lives of many people and in 1984 friends and family came together to create a society and establish a memorial fund. They wanted to pay tribute to those who died and create a unique, on-‐going, dynamic memorial.
The Tongariro Memorial Fund is a special and powerful way in which individuals, whanau, schools and organisations can support the on-going projects and activities of Project Tongariro for the long term. All donations made to Fund, including bequests and endowments in people's wills, will be managed and invested by the Geyser Community Foundation on Project Tongairo's behalf.
Income earned on the capital will be made available to Project Tongariro every year for investment in one of four key areas of focus: biodiversity, education, history or recreation. The annual income will enable continued development of projects and programmes in and around Tongariro National Park, World Heritage Area and in the wider Taupo region.
