Nikau Foundation builds long-term reliable funding streams for our communities by investing and growing the generations we receive. Our supporters give through us in the knowledge that their gift will go further forever.

We aren’t just about one single cause; we’re about a place and its people. Nikau Foundation manages a range of funds, from those established through the generosity of our donors to place-based funds – enabling you to give where you live. We have grown considerably over the last few years, and this is testament to our simple, cost-effective model which provides maximum impact to our communities. We work with every donor to ensure that their aspirations for giving are met, and that they are connected to the transformational difference they are having.

Some donors choose to establish a fund individually or get the children involved and give as a family, you may also wish to honour someone dear to you.

Others choose to give collectively by supporting one of our forever funds – leveraging our connectedness and strategic approach to grant-making, you can ensure that your generosity is responding to our communities greatest needs.

It’s your gift, your say.
