Based in sunny Nelson at the top of the South Island of New Zealand, The Shortbread Trust is a registered charity with the New Zealand Charity Commissions that works to provide clean drinking water, seed and tools for farming and emergency shelter to people missing the basic essentials of life in Third World countries. As a non-profit organisation, we have NO administration costs so 100% of all donations go to the charity projects to relieve poverty and hardship. We achieve this by whatever small cost we do have is paid by the shortbread sales.

We raise funds primarily through the sale of shortbread biscuits, but also through the sales. Also the Shortbread Cottage backpackers sells a avtivity in Nelson, lets say a seakayak trip as we are like a I- Site and can take 10% of the sale. Shortbread Cottage donates the 10% to The Shortbread Trust trust and we take donations,

Have a great day

From all us involved with The Shortbread Trust.
