Behind every grant there is a story

Support for the communities of today, to shape the communities of tomorrow.

To enhance lives, Foundation North provides funding and support to initiatives large and small to respond to their communities now and for generations to come. In doing so, we support community-based initiatives in Tāmaki Makaurau and Te Tai Tokerau.
