Mixit is fundraising for a new van

Part of the magic of Mixit is, every Saturday during term time, we are able to bring together young people from all over Auckland to join in our programme. Thanks to our generous funders, and donors, it costs them nothing to attend and provides comprehensive transport support to enable access. The value young people get from being part of Mixit is immeasurable. For many, and their families, safe and secure transport to and from Mixit is essential. It gives them freedom, security and is one less thing for parents to worry about. Additionally given that our local transport system can be overwhelming, expensive and onerous for new Aucklanders, it’s a way to support young people to be part of a transformational opportunity.

Mixit is fundraising for a new van

Join the quest to reach our target

We provide our free transport service every weekend throughout the school year, during our summer projects, for leaders training retreats, along with co-ordinating pickups and drop offs across Tamaki Makaurau, in a passenger van driven by a trusted, paid driver. However, at present, this van is a rental and we only have it on Saturdays. We are unable to make use of it for our growing outreach programme with schools and community groups both in Auckland and beyond. Because it’s a rental, we also can’t wrap it with our name and images that share what we do with the world.

We would very much like to change that, by purchasing our own van in 2024.

Thanks to some incredibly generous people, many of whom are great Friends of Mixit, we've already raised $40,992.00 in donations and we’re getting close to our funding goal of $75,000.00 (which includes $5000 for sign writing needs). With that we can purchase a brand-new Toyota 10-to-12-seater Mini-bus, the most reliable option in New Zealand. We’re reaching out to Friends of Mixit who may be in a position to help. Any donation is appreciated, regardless of size. If you are able to contribute and want 100% of your donation to go to this fundraiser, here’s how:
