Taranaki Foundation Logo

Te Karaka Foundation has a new name and brand identify that emphasises its mission to be a renowned foundation for giving that provides an inter-generational legacy for the Taranaki community.

Our new website is still under development but it will be ready soon.


Taranaki is a special place.

Around the maunga to the sea, an energy exists. It creates a drive and a passion to get things done, to make life better, and create a prosperous Taranaki for all.

Taranaki Foundation is born of this drive; a commitment to creating a better future for all through philanthropy and community giving.

We’re the Foundation for the people of Taranaki; established to guide and help causes and projects that improve the lives of the people of Taranaki. We connect donors and partners with these projects and causes they’re passionate about.
