Kia ora, welcome to Community Foundations of New Zealand’s national newsletter.
Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the trip through localised generosity in New Zealand.
Community foundations are a fairly new concept in New Zealand (by world standards) and spreading across the country. It’s easy to see why; place-based philanthropy (or, more simply, local generosity) is well-aligned with the kiwi way. We care about our communities and we care about their uniqueness and the people and causes within. We care about the future.
And, believe it or not, it’s incredibly hard to give your money away effectively! So a respected foundation in your community which will manage your money well, while meeting your wishes as donor, is key.
