Becoming a member of the Vegan Society of Aotearoa New Zealand helps us go grow as a society and as a community; enabling us to provide support for vegans and to promote a vegan lifestyle within New Zealand. You can view our goals here: about us.

Add a donation

Adding a donation to your membership fee helps us meet the cost of running outreach workshops such as Vegan 101 and film events, as well as pay for materials such as stall kits, expo fees, leaflets, banners, that help us promote the growth of veganism within New Zealand.

The Vegan Society is a registered charity which means you are entitled to a tax rebate on donations on top of membership cost.
