RIG Project Sponsors

The Rebuild the Independence Group (RIG) thank all of our Sponsors who contribute to the success of our project. Each offers their time, expertise and/or money to help us bring The Independence to life!


Sealink provides the vast majority of surface transport to Kangaroo Island.  They also provide sponsorship to many island organisations, including RIG, in the shape of free or discounted travel and carriage of freight.

Private Individuals

We consider anyone who donates fund to RIG to be one of our supporters no less than anyone who provides grant monies or in-kind support.   Our main fund raiser is our "Buy a plank" programme.

As we have now (November 2018) sold over 2000 planks at a minimum donation of $20, we have received over $40,000 from this scheme.   Thank you to everyone - and you come from all over the world - who has helped us in this way.  We love you all and hope you'll return to the Boathouse as often as possible.

Some of the planks are shown in the photo.

Kangaroo Island Council

Kangaroo Island Council have long supported the RIG project and provided a grant from their Community Infrastructure Grant programme towards the construction of the boathouse.

We were also pleased to receive Council's project of the year award in 2016.
