Our story begins back in 2010, when a small group of people founded the Nelson Bays Community Foundation with a view to give back to the region they love. Their aim was to inspire others to do the same.
Like all of us , they want to see our rohe prosper now and into the future. They believed that if the community could be drawn together with a common purpose, we could achieve something much greater with more meaningful and enduring impact than if everyone simply ‘did their own thing’.
In December 2018, we adopted the name "Top of the South Community Foundation" to better reflect our purpose to serve all the communities of Te Tauihu.
