    Donations towards this fund are carefully allocated upon a case by case application basis, by the Club’s Access Committee.

    In 1975, Wanda Alice Margaret Hall (1912 - 2005), the widow of the late David Oswald William Hall (1909 -1971), set aside $2000 in trust to ‘provide financial assistance for the publication of alpine literature’. The first recipient of this fund was Hugh Wilson, towards the publication of Field Guide; Wild Plants of Mount Cook National Park in 1978.

    Since then, the DOW Hall Fund has helped support the publication of many other books. The fund is replenished with donations from those who wish to encourage others with a passion for our mountain environment to record their knowledge and experiences in print.

     Deavoll and FowlieKoh-e-Rank 2012: Deavoll and FowlieSir Edmund Hillary stated, at the end of his Presidency of the NZAC in 1967: "To retain its vitality the Club must actively encourage the spirit of adventure amongst its members - persuade them according to their capabilities to seek out new routes, new peaks, new places to explore; support them wholeheartedly in overseas expeditions; devote time and effort to improving their skills and their techniques."

    The Expedition Capital Fund is financed directly from donations. It was created to build up a long-term fund base that would, in itself, generate income from interest to ensure ongoing capital for Expedition Grants into the future. If you would like to find out how to become a valued member of our Capital Fund Supporters Team, please contact Sam Newton, General Manager.
