The new centre is a community organisation run by a board of volunteers. The board have developed and overseen the project for the last four years and also worked around the clock to acquire all the necessary funding to bring the project to life. Much of the funding has come from Lottery funds and other grant funders with no ratepayer money being used on the reconstruction project. The Kaikōura Community OpShop has raised an incredible $300,000 for the project and in recognition they will be the official sponsors of the main auditorium.
