for future generations

Directed by a small group of energetic and dedicated Trustees, the Glenorchy Community Trust’s mission is to support initiatives that align with the community’s shared vision and values, fostering the vibrancy and resilience of the community at the head of Lake Wakatipu.

The Trust’s vision is that residents of Glenorchy live in a healthy, regenerative partnership with the natural environment, reflecting the community’s self-reliant, diverse, welcoming and innovative character.







A message from the Trustees
