Who we support - donations and sponsorship


Burnsco's main support is to Coastguard, LegaSea and Forest and Bird. These 3 organisations are very different, but all share a passion for the ocean and the great outdoors, and keeping them safe for future generations.


Burnsco is a Platinum sponsor of LegaSea and we have been a long time supporter of LegaSea's mission.

LegaSea is a committed group of Kiwis working together to restore our coastal fisheries. LegaSea is a not for profit organisation. It is a subsidiary of the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council, which advocates and funds a range of projects to support recreational fishing and ecosystem-based fisheries management.


Burnsco supports New Zealand Coastguard with instore subscription drives and donations.

Coastguard is the primary maritime search and rescue service in New Zealand. It is a volunteer run organisation and is based at 63 Coastguard units on our lakes and coastal waters.

Coastguard was responsible for bringing 6,700 people home safely to their families last year.

Forest and Bird

Forest and Bird is New Zealand's leading independent conservation organisation - protecting wildlife and wild places, on land and in the sea.

Burnsco recognises the difference Forest and Bird is making to our land and marine environment and is committed to supporting them with donations.

Local Sponsorship

In addition to its National sponsorship, Burnsco supports local boating clubs, yacht races, fishing competitions and RV Rallies on a regular basis. We normally support these activities by products and/or gift vouchers. If you'd like to apply for local sponsorship, please fill in the sponsorship form and email it to your nearest store. It's important that you make your request realistic, rather than overly ambitious, as we do want to sponsor as many events possible. The ability to display our marketing material (wind blades, flags, posters, brochures, etc.) will also help your cause!
