Our new 15-year strategy prioritises grantmaking on outcomes, strengthening partnerships to achieve projects of greater scale and impact and innovative approaches. This is driving the expansion of our staff team at this exciting time.

As the community trust for Auckland and Northland the $1.2+ billion endowment we preserve and grow for the people of our region allows us to make $40 million of grants per year. We support the work of community organisations, large and small, that make our region a great place to live. We take an intergenerational view of the needs and aspirations of our communities and are working to support the communities of today to shape the communities of tomorrow.

Based in a heritage building in Ponsonby, as a leading philanthropic organisation we’re committed to staff personal development and offer a collaborative team environment focused on learning and supporting innovation.


  • Impact Investment - Call for Expressions Of Interest


Impact Investment - Call for Expressions Of Interest

Foundation North is requesting expressions of interest from intermediaries and consultants to assist with the execution of the Foundation’s impact investment activity.

We are seeking a ‘scout’ to work with Foundation staff to implement and monitor the impact investment approach approved by the Board.

The initial stage of the work involves us working with a scout who has extensive networks and previous expertise in impact investment to identify a range of impact investment opportunities that can be presented to the Foundation and screened for fit, risk, financial return and impact. The intent of this first stage is to understand the range of impact investment opportunities in Auckland and Northland.

Most importantly we are looking for a trusted partner to work closely with us to inform and shape our approach to impact investment through shared learning and iteration of strategy and process over time.

The Foundation may engage one or multiple scouts depending on experience, networks and expertise.

Please submit proposals (and queries) to: Eve Jolly, Innovation Catalyst or phone 022 093 5284
