Taranaki is a special place. Around our maunga an energy exists — driving passionate people across our rohe to get things done, to improve lives, and create the best of New Zealand, here in Taranaki.
Taranaki Foundation is born of this same drive and commitment. A charitable community foundation created for the people of Taranaki, by the people of Taranaki, our vision is to nurture and grow the prosperity of our region through community giving, partnerships and philanthropy.
Water play, climbing platforms and a pump track are some of the new features planned for an innovative new play and learning space that will transform New Plymouth’s Kāwaroa Park for all ages to enjoy and explore.
Destination Play at Kāwaroa, which is being led by the Taranaki Foundation in partnership with Ngāti Te Whiti, NPDC and NP Partners, will be created next year and is designed as a legacy for future generations.
Construction is set to begin after Summer School holidays
"We are unashamedly Taranaki. At our core, the Foundation is about Taranaki people leaving a lasting gift for Taranaki people."Bryce Barnett - Chair, Taranaki Foundation
September is Wills Month, a good reminder of the importance of having a will and keeping it current.
If you are considering leaving a gift in your will, we can help you make yours a lasting legacy for our community.
BIG dreams CAN happen!
