Foundation North distributes grants to the not-for-profit sector throughout Auckland and Northland each year.
Founded on the sale of its shares in the ASB bank, the Foundation has distributed more than $800 million since being formed in 1988.
The Foundation makes grants across three funding areas: People, Places and Participation. Each includes a number of strategic objectives and these objectives determine which organisations are funded.
