The Learning Environment

Welcome to the donation site for The Learning Environment, powered by The Gift Trust.

The Gift Trust, a New Zealand registered charity and philanthropic trust, is helping the Learning Environment with their international fundraising mechanisms to enable them to receive funding for their living educational campus in Whanganui. The Gift Trust can receive tax deductible donations from US tax residents and these can be tagged for the Learning Environment. The Gift Trust receives US donations via our partnership with the US donor-advised fund RSF Social Finance. The account is called ‘Friends of The Gift Trust NZ’. Any donations to it will receive a US tax receipt and will be eligible for US tax benefits. Donations can be made in cash, shares or securities.

For administrative reasons, the minimum donation that donors can give is US$1,000.
