Beach Guardians

Committed to the cause? Become a Beach Guardian


If it weren’t for people like you

Without the individuals, businesses, and community organisations who regularly donate, surf lifesaving clubs around New Zealand would not be able to keep our beaches safe for the tens of thousands of tourists and locals who visit every year.

The Lifesavers Foundation relies on generous New Zealanders to fund local surf lifesaving training, essential rescue equipment, and research and development programs.

To recognise and reward our ongoing supporters, we are proud to introduce our Beach Guardians program.

Limited time only

How to get involved

You can choose to support at any amount that you can afford, or you can also choose one of the following membership levels.

Becoming a Beach Guardian effectively puts you alongside the heroes on our beaches who save lives every day, because without your financial support they wouldn’t be able to do their job. It’s as simple as that.
