COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONS OF NEW ZEALAND
Membership of Community Foundations of New Zealand means that our community foundation meets professional standards of best practice. We are governed by a local Board, are community-focused and are striving to build a permanent endowment fund which will benefit our local community, forever.
There are Community Foundations across many communities in New Zealand, with a number of others in the planning stages.
Community Foundations of New Zealand are part of a global movement of place-based philanthropy, one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy in the world.

2018 and it really is a time for new beginnings in community foundations across New Zealand as we launch new funds and events, we welcome key people on board and we make plans for a new community foundation about to be launched in Queenstown next month!
The impact of community foundations in New Zealand continues to grow, with the new Christchurch Foundation joining us and making one of their key aims to foster a culture of generosity in Christchurch.
Entirely built by generous local people who want to give back, all over New Zealand community foundations are now emerging as changemakers in their communities.
Community Foundations are set up to encourage personal generosity at a local level. They have grown rapidly throughout New Zealand over the past 10-15 years due to their attractive philosophy and sustainable structure.
Might your community like to join us? Our goal is for everyone in New Zealand to have access to their very own community foundation so they can give where they live and change their communities for the better.
Our donors are our community heroes, contributing to specialist funds and choosing to put their donations to great local causes. Across the country, they are shaping communities and changing lives.
