As Coastlands has grown and evolved over the years, our connection and commitment to the people of Kãpiti has remained steadfast. We have always recognised that our success comes from the community that has grown alongside us, and actively support organisations and initiatives dedicated to the wellbeing and enrichment of our region.
We commit over $150,000 annually to community projects, and we are proud to share some of our recent contributions with you.
Coastlands Aquatic Centre
Coastlands Aquatic Centre is a state-of-the-art facility making fitness, recreation and water safety accessible to all ages and abilities across the Kāpiti Region. This centre is one of our key ongoing contributions to the community.
Over the years, we have made substantial donations that have allowed the facility to expand its offering; the complex consists of a 25 x 25 metre lane pool with a moveable floor, a smaller programmes pool, a toddler’s pool, hydro slide, spa pool and sauna, along with a bustling café, physiotherapy and meeting facilities on site.
We also help fund the Learn to Swim classes provided by the KCDC at the aquatic centre, to make water safety training available to as many people as possible.
Keeping the arts alive on the Coast
We believe that the arts, performance and creativity are essential elements of wellbeing for the people of Kāpiti. Te Raukura Performing Arts Centre is a key asset to our community, and through substantial donations we are helping ensure that Te Raukura can continue to provide opportunities for social, recreational, civil and cultural participation.
Kapiti Turf Trust
One of our recent large project contributions has been towards the building and maintenance of the Kāpiti Sports Turf, an exciting new asset for our region! The turf itself attracts premier hockey games and enables local players to train on a world-class surface.
The attached Kāpiti Pavilion is an architecturally designed, modern space. It is available to the community for meetings, conferences, social events and workshops.
Our commitment to an active community
Sports and an active lifestyle are integral to physical and social wellbeing in Kāpiti. The active culture in our region is thriving and we are proud to provide substantial support to several organisations such as the Kāpiti College Football team, Paraparaumu Junior Rugby Club, Netball Kāpiti, Horowhenua Kāpiti Rugby Union, CSL Netball Kāpiti, Kāpiti Womens Triathlon, Kāpiti Athletics Club and Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club.
We also make contributions to the Halberg Foundation Eagles Golfing Club, Kāpiti College 1st XI Hockey, Paraparaumu College Boys Hockey, Kāpiti College Senior Hockey Club, Paraparaumu College Girls XI Football, Raumati Swim Club, Kāpiti College Girls Rugby 7s and the Waikanae Beach Tennis Club.
Supporting local education
Our schools and kindergartens are the lifeblood of a happy and successful community.
We make sure to support our local education initiatives such as the Life Education Trust, and regularly contribute to fundraisers for Raumati Beach Kindy, Ngahina Kindy, Pukerua Kindy, Paraparaumu Beach school, Paraparaumu College, Paekakariki School and Paekakariki Playcentre.
Helping community initiatives succeed
There are several organisations within the Kāpiti community doing a world of good for people in need and helping make our region a better place to live. We are working alongside the Foodbank as they build their new premises to ensure their operations can continue smoothly over the transition period.
We also provide support to the awesome efforts of the Nikau Foundation, along with contributions to the Police Managers Guild, the Kāpiti Lions and Rotary Club, and the June Oakley Memorial Youth Trust.
Helping business on the Coast thrive
Success for business brings jobs, talent, prosperity and innovation to the Kāpiti Region. We aren’t just focused on our own commercial success - we want to help enrich our business community as a whole.
Wherever possible, we use local contractors and suppliers for the maintenance, building and renovations of the Coastlands buildings. We also enjoy a close relationship with the Kāpiti Chamber of Commerce, to ensure all businesses on the Coast are working alongside each other for collective success.
