Otago Section Sponsorship Grants Available

Source: Otago Section Newsletter (June 2017)

This year the Otago Section are again calling for applications for three, personal sponsorships for 2017. We expect to contribute around $500 per grant but could go higher for something spectacular! The rules are simple: the winning sponsorships must contribute to climbing in the Otago Region and the project must have wider benefits – not just for the individual concerned but also for the wider climbing community.

In recent years, we have funding Alpine Training for a climber who went on to lead section trips, helped fund a trip to Nepal in return for on-going contribution to the Section and funded a young rock climber’s winter training costs; he has gone on to develop and run a youth training programme attracting new climbers to the section. Your project could be next. Send us an email to otago.climber@gmail.com and tell us about your personal project; who’s involved, what it will cost and how your sponsorship will benefit both you and the section.
