Making a gift is easy

"We have a number of gifting options, and I’m very happy to discuss these at any time."

Community Foundation
With Top of the South Foundation your charitable giving makes a real, positive difference that will be felt throughout our region for generations to come.

We work with a range of inspiring local organisations that enables you to support causes that are dear to your heart.

Keeping it local

Our regional focus and local expertise means your gift supports your community.  Choose to support the local charitable causes, projects and initiatives you are passionate about.

Keeping it simple

Through one gift, you can support multiple causes all of which directly benefit Te Tauihu. You can direct your giving to areas you care about, or you can leave it in the hands of the Foundation’s trustees to put the funds to work where they believe it will do the most good.

Keeping your gift safe forever

We invest and grow your gift through our partnership with Craigs Investment Partners www.craigsip.com, and safeguard it for generations.

Check out the excellent Community Foundations of NZ CFNZ Fund Calculator and you can see for yourself how your fund will grow over time.

Keeping it real

With our skilled and experienced trustees and staff, together  with our professional investment and granting practices, your gift is in safe hands.  As a donor you will receive regular reporting on how your gift is growing, and being protected.  Gifts made to Top of the South Community Foundation during a person’s life also qualify for a tax credit.
