Stronger more resilient communities create better outcomes for everyone
The Foundation's general fund is from our community, for our community. It has been established to support anyone who wishes to donate to a range of charitable purposes within New Zealand. This will support many diverse needs and help make a real difference in the lives of families, whānau and our natural environment.
A pro-active funding model
Our general fund works within a pro-active funding model. That means we don’t accept applications for funding or run grant rounds. Rather, through our community engagement and research, the Trustee and Advisory Board actively seek out charitable organisations with the greatest needs at the time of distribution that fall within the Foundation's specific focus areas.
