Invest In Outstanding Leadership


With the exciting development of the Edmund Hillary Fellowship, being implemented in 2017, the Hillary Institute is in the process of reviewing its financial position and establishing a solid foundation for the future.  


Our initial funding came from the generous support of Jan Cameron who lent the Institute NZ$2.5 million following her sale of the Kathmandu clothing company. The Institute has now established its own capital endowment fund and is actively seeking contributions to both its capital raising programme and its annual operating budget.  We invite you to consider championing and supporting the Hillary Institute and its work.
