Community foundations are your local, one stop shop to give in your community. They are independent and not-for-profit, running on a proven model of regionally based philanthropy, that has grown internationally over 100 years. Community Foundations are now found in most regions of New Zealand.
Community Foundations focus on a region and its people, enabling those who live there to give and shape their communities. They are governed by passionate and skilled local volunteer Boards
Community Foundations build long-term, reliable funding streams for their local communities by investing and growing the gifts they receive. So, you’re not really giving to a Community Foundation, but through it. And the investment model
means your generosity will have benefits, forever.
