The SplashSave Foundation
The SplashSave Foundation is a registered charity under the charities act 1957 CC58628.
SplashSave is a social enterprise with a simple mission in mind - To provide every child with the opportunity to learn basic swimming and water safety skills.
We provide swim teaching materials (The SplashSave Pack) to parents & caregivers of 0-8 year old kids so they can enjoy the fun and rewarding experience of teaching their own child to swim. It's great fun, saves money and ultimately saves lives.

SplashSave does two things:
We raise funds to deliver projects that provide SplashSave Packs for free to the communities that need them the most. Donate to the charity here
We also sell packs to parents who can afford them (a small cost compared to swim lessons) and 20% of proceeds from each pack bought goes back towards our fund raising projects.

CURRENT PROJECT Teach a child to swim for $30
Drowning in New Zealand is too high and Learn to swim is an expensive exercise. For only $30 you can help a child learn basic swimming and water safety skills that may one day save their life.
We aim to provide as many children as possible with this lifesaving resource please donate kindly to the following page.
SplashSave Social Projects have so far included:
$30,000 raised to work with Plunket Nursing Association to distribute packs to families in areas where higher drowning rates occur in New Zealand
$20,000 raised to translate the pack into Te Reo Maori (Indigenous language of New Zealand) for distribution in Maori communities where drowning rates are higher
$20,000 raised through ACC to further the SplashSave programs reach.
Working with Parent Centres and Kindergartens to run information sessions for parents and reach children in higher risk geographic locations and where access to early water safety education is more challenging.
Work with the New Zealand Community Trust to distribute packs to local communities and reach families where financial barriers to purchasing the pack may exist.
We have a number of other projects in the pipeline which are all targeted to providing free swimming and water safety lessons to our tamariki in New Zealand.
