Contribute to Netsafe

Online safety is an important topic, and one that is rapidly growing as the use of digital technology increases. It’s vital for New Zealand that the online safety community works together to enable everyone to confidently access and take advantage of these opportunities. We appreciate any support that helps us with our goals. If you’d like to contribute to Netsafe there are several ways you can be involved – you can donate, sponsor or become a member.

Become a Netsafe member

Netsafe is an incorporated society with members from all over the world. If you’d like to be a part of the online safety conversation, you should consider becoming a member.
