About us

Multiples Bay of Plenty is a non-profit, volunteer-run organisation, which services the Bay of Plenty – including Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, Whakatane, Waihi, Katikati and Rotorua, and everywhere in between.

Our charity has been running for 25 years and today consists of around 60 local families all with twins or triplets that keep them busy. We hold regular get-togethers, including playgroups and events, to encourage a sense of community in our charity and enable members to connect with like-minded parents.

While our charity is run independently, we are affiliated to Multiples New Zealand.

We have been a registered charity with Charities Services since 2013 (Registration Number: CC49875).

Levels of Membership

We offer two membership options:

  • general membership, which is free; and
  • premium membership, which costs $30 a year for you and your family.

Our general membership gives you access to:

  • Support from the charity in times of need.
  • Access to free events and access to all other events with payment.
