Who we support

A selection of projects which have received Alterno’s support. If your idea or project is unlike any of these, that’s not a bad thing!

Our primary areas of interest are • HEALTH • FITNESS • NUTRITION • EDUCATION

But we do also support ideas and projects outside those areas which we perceive can have a major impact on making New Zealand a better place to live, work and play.
