Make a Corporate Donation


Our collections and buildings require ongoing care and restoration, but with your support they can be enjoyed by current and future generations of Kiwis.

MOTAT is a registered charity (registration number CC30945) and your donation may qualify as a tax deductible gift.

You may specify the intent of your gift or make a general contribution to our work – we are happy to discuss the options best suited to your business.



Our sponsors enjoy a range of benefits including prominent exposure and acknowledgement before and during the run of the sponsored activity. We will work with you to develop a plan that meets your specific objectives and budget.

We have a number of sponsorship packages available, including Exhibitions, Events, Installations, Holiday and Weekend Experiences –these include both one-off and long term arrangements.

Strategic Partnerships


MOTAT’s Master Strategy (2014-2019) creates a number of opportunities for long term, mutually beneficial partnerships.

The strategy provides a plan to move the museum from being a ‘collection of things’ to a ‘light bulb institution’ that will demonstrate the best that New Zealand’s innovators have to offer.

We want to collaborate with organisations who share an alignment with our strategic objectives -in the process creating bespoke and truly innovative partnerships with clear and measurable business benefits.
