the foundation and The Tindall Foundation are excited to announce a new funding partnership covering the Nelson Tasman and Marlborough regions. Martina O’Driscoll, Funding & Relationships Manager for The Tindall Foundation said, “We have appointed the foundation as our regional partner to support our Families and Social Services Programme across the top of the South Island.” the foundation will co-ordinate funding applications and make recommendations to The Tindall Foundation on where the funding is best spent. “the foundation has the benefit of local knowledge and can make decisions on where the greatest impact will be for the community,” said Martina.
This approach is applied across New Zealand by The Tindall Foundation and is hugely successful. “This way of working allows The Tindall Foundation to engage with credible organisations close to their communities, trusting them to distribute and recommend funding on our behalf. This ensures funds are delivered for the greatest benefit in the community.”

Julie Varney, Chair of the foundation says, “This is a significant milestone for the foundation and recognises the progress we have achieved since launching in 2010. This partnership with The Tindall Foundation represents a step-change in our growth, and will enable us to help distribute significantly more funds into the community from 2016. the foundation representatives are extremely grateful to The Tindall Foundation for its support of our activities, and the confidence they have shown in partnering with us.”
