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.
