Partners & funding

Skateboarding New Zealand (SBNZ) is a not-for-profit organisation. Currently, SBNZ is run entirely by a volunteer executive committee. We have a series of partnerships and funding avenues that help us deliver our governance and operational work.

Our partners

Skateboarding New Zealand works with several different partners both locally and globally in various contexts. Some of these relationships are collaborative and exist to share knowledge and best practices that benefit athletes and community interests. Some are commercial and require us to deliver professional services. Others allow us to provide our governance and operational obligations and practices.
