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. We keep the pulse of community and we can help you make your giving have real impact for the long term.

Anyone can give and it all makes a difference.

“It can be hard to know where your giving will make the biggest impact. The beauty of Community Foundations is that advice is available to help achieve impact across your interests – for me that’s te ao Māori, environment and education. I love that giving can be so specific to the things that matter to me, and can work for the future of Aotearoa.”
