The Waitangi National Trust is launching a $10 million fundraising drive today to build a new museum at the Treaty Grounds. It also wants to increase its digital presence and help more schoolchildren to travel there.
Trust chairman Pita Paraone said the drive was necessary because the trust did not receive any public money as the grounds were gifted to the nation by Lord Bledisloe in 1932 on the condition that taxpayers would not be burdened.
