At Community Foundations of New Zealand, we are proud to be associated with The Tindall Foundation, Craigs Investment Partners, Philanthropy New Zealand and Plato Creative, our key supporters in growing generosity and smarter giving in communities nationwide.
A private family foundation and founding partner, The Tindall Foundation supports Community Foundations because they see this model of philanthropy as being crucial to the wellbeing and future of local communities. Sir Stephen Tindall himself is a supporter of growing generosity across the nation and, together, our aim is for every New Zealander to have access to a local Community Foundation as a means harnessing the local generosity of a region.

One of New Zealand’s largest investment advisory and management firms, Craigs Investment Partners are a founding and principle partner. Craigs believe it’s important, as a corporate and as individuals, to support the communities they operate and live in and are great believers in the work Community Foundations are undertaking across New Zealand.
Philanthropy New Zealand provide us with support and guidance for inspiring and facilitating better philanthropy and grantmaking. As the peak body representing and supporting philanthropy and grantmaking in our country, their vision for a thoughtfully generous Aotearoa New Zealand aligns closely with our own.
