The Right Honourable Dame Cindy Kiro, GNZM, QSO, Governor-General of New Zealand is the first Māori woman to be appointed as Governor-General and is a champion for social justice, equity and public health. Her guiding principles of kaitiakitanga, oranga and manaakitanga align closely with those of Community Foundations.
"Community Foundations are set up to encourage personal philanthropy at a local level, playing a crucial role in helping people give back where communities need it most. We help people realise their philanthropic goals by matching their interests with community needs and finding innovative ways to make every donation count.”
