Ways to donate
Help us to encourage every Kiwi child and whānau to know the joys, and reap the benefits, of reading for pleasure!
We want all New Zealanders to have a love of reading, as it's an even more powerful predictor of future success than socio-economic status.
Encouraging reading, particularly reading for pleasure, is critical for our nation’s prosperity and wellbeing.
Thank you for joining us. We can’t do what we do without you.

Other ways you can help
Please use our services to book as many author visits as your school would like. We will contact authors on your behalf and pay them for their time.
If your school is a current member of Read NZ Te Pou Muramura, we can subsidise the cost of your first author visit each year. Often this means that your first author visit is at no additional charge to the school. The price of second or subsequent visits starts at $260 and we always provide an estimate of costs before confirming a Writers in Schools visit.
