Make a monthly donation

Become a friend of the Himalayan Trust

Making a monthly donation to the Himalayan Trust is easy and convenient, and it’s the most efficient way to help continue Sir Ed’s life-changing work in the Everest region of Nepal.  

A regular donation from you allows us plan for the future and means we can commit to working with communities in the Himalayas to provide better healthcare and education for many years to come. 

“I declare that I have had a full life with much happiness and a share of sadness. I have little cause for complaint. If however some people in New Zealand feel I have made some contribution to the prestige of my country then they could best demonstrate this by continuing modest support to the Himalayan people I have worked with for so many years.” Sir Edmund Hillary

How your donation makes a difference


$20 a month
Will equip two school science labs per year

Over the year, a regular gift of $20 a month could help equip two high school science labs, like this one which was damaged in the 2015 earthquakes. 

Science teacher Sangita Rai says: “It’s been tough for the students who are sitting their exams.  It’s very difficult, especially when we can’t use our science lab. After the earthquake we’ve had no power so it’s impossible to even turn on a light bulb.”


$30 a month
can provide desks and chairs for 22 children

All the schools supported by the Himalayan Trust were damaged in the earthquakes and 10 were completely destroyed. A donation of $30 a month can provide desks, chairs and books for a classroom of 22 children. You can ensure children continue their education and open up to them a world of opportunities.
