Where it began
Seed funding was raised from several benefactors which has enabled the Trust’s formation, establishment and development of fundraising collateral. In 2006, The Guardians of the Sea Charitable Trust Ngā Kaitiaki mo Tangaroa was incorporated and obtained charitable status as defined by the Charitable Trust Act 1957. We are approved by Inland Revenue for the purposes of sections KC 5, DB 32 and DV 11 of the Income Tax Act 2004.
