We’re part of a network of Community Foundations that have been growing around Aotearoa New Zealand since 2003.
Through the coordination of the Community Foundations of New Zealand (our national body), we’re all working to make a lasting difference in our local communities. And supported by The Tindall Foundation and Craig’s Investment Partners Limited, our aim is for every New Zealander to be able to affect lasting change wherever their home or heart may be.
Community Foundations are building permanent funding streams to achieve long term community transformation. It’s the interest your giving earns that will be distributed to local causes; the gift itself remains protected so it can continue to benefit your chosen cause well into the future.
To see how our endowment funds work, check out this interactive calculator that CFNZ have developed to show how an endowment fund is a gift that keep giving year after year – click here.
