Your gift. Your say.

Community Foundations are not about one single cause, we’re about a place and its people. You can choose how your giving benefits your local community. You just need to ask “What do I care about most?”and “How do I want to make a better future for my community”?

Anyone can give and it all makes a difference.

Giving through a Community Foundation is a kaitiaki role for society – we can all play a part in being guardians for New Zealand’s future.”
