Special partnerships

We are hugely grateful to our special partners – organisations that go above and beyond to support our work in Nepal and New Zealand.


Kathmandu have generously supported our work since the 2015 earthquakes and continue to support us through financial contributions, the annual Christmas fundraising campaign through their stores, and supporting our annual Himalayan Trust trek.

Land Rover New Zealand

To celebrate the centenary of Sir Ed’s birth, Land Rover New Zealand will bring safe water to Nepal thanks to their Sir Ed Hillary Limited Edition Discovery.

Land Rover will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each vehicle to the Himalayan Trust. Their incredible donation of $150,000 will bring safe, clean running water to hundreds of people living in the villages of Bubsa and Monjo in the Everest region.

University of Waikato Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Programme

Every year, the Sir Edmund Hillary Scholars at the University of Waikato raise funds towards the Himalayan Trust’s work in Nepal. A small, select group of Sir Edmund Hillary scholars also visit the work in Nepal each year.

We are proud to be associated with these incredible young people who are great ambassadors for the Himalayan Trust and New Zealand.

Macleans College, Auckland

The fantastic Hillary House students at Macleans College have raised an incredible $33,000 over the last three years (2015-2017).

Sir Ed was a regular visitor to the College, and today the students continue to support his legacy and raise funds for the Himalayan Trust every year
