Free Donor Advisory Service

Recently a donor contacted Nikau Foundation to assist with identifying charities that he had not previously supported through his personal charitable trust.

Our in-depth knowledge of the charity sector in Wellington meant we were able to give him a list of 30, from which he chose 10 for Nikau Foundation to provide with “pass-through-grants” of $5,000 each. Two of the organisations benefiting from this are The Parenting Place and Zeal Education Trust, both working to address important issues facing young children and youth in Wellington.

The benefits of using a third-party organisation to assist with your giving are:
– Advice and knowledge of community needs
– Expertise in how to structure your philanthropy
– Anonymity if required

This is a free, no-strings-attached service so please contact us now if you need advice in this area.
