PLUNGE! Conventions, are run by volunteers and financial and in-kind support from local businesses listed below for which we are very grateful.
PLUNGE! 2022, with the instability brought on by the governments ever changing restrictions surrounding mandates and protocols which has seen folk out of work and some businesses having to lower the business hours and thus their earnings, the Plunge Enterprises CEO decided it would best to reach out for support to a wider audience for funding of the 2022 event of PLUNGE! Pop Culture Convention 2022.
We were able to raise $2000 on BOOSTED.co.nz, of which approx. $1000 was raised by private donations through direct contact.
PLUNGE! 2021, for the first time in it's 3 year history was able to be fully funded by the Creative Communities Scheme. Which meant that we were able to run the event without a cost to any community based or, non-profit group that was was invited to participate.
We received, NZ$1300. through the Whangarei District Council who administers and allocates funds through Creative Communities Scheme for the Whangārei District on behalf of Creative New Zealand.
