We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our Nikau family. Through these partnerships, we have been able to grow our reach and continue to deliver transformational change across our region.
Community Foundations of New Zealand
We are proud to partner with Community Foundations of New Zealand through which we connect and collaborate with 17 community foundations across the country – sharing invaluable support, knowledge and guidance.
Place-based philanthropy is a growing trend globally, as communities see the benefits of channeling local generosity into local causes.
Over the last five years, through community foundations across the country, $20 million has been granted to the people and places New Zealanders care about most. Today we have over $130 million invested from generous locals for the future. Furthermore, we have hundreds of anticipated bequests adding up to many millions of dollars to be invested for community transformation. With our unique model protecting the original gifts, the potential good these gifts can do for the future is boundless.
The Tindall Foundation
The Tindall Foundation understands the importance of leveraging our community knowledge and insight to ensure it is making the greatest impact locally. In partnership, we support projects working for positive social change. Led by the Foundation’s philanthropy strategy, grants are targeted towards helping youth, families, community and the environment.
“Community Foundations enable people to give back to their own community and support local projects. It is a great way for anyone who wants to make a positive change in their community’s future to get involved and show their generosity.” Sir Stephen Tindall
