The Christchurch Foundation’s role is to help generous people and companies achieve their dreams for our city.
Thinking local and striving to meet the needs of your hometown is now very important to many who are considering making a gift. We ensure that your impact can be seen and felt among the neighbours, communities and suburbs of Christchurch.
You don’t give to the Christchurch Foundation, you give through us to the causes in our city that are important to you.
How we do it
We’re a registered charity here in New Zealand, and in the future, in other locations around the world. This enables those whose hearts reside in Christchurch, even when they don't, to still play an important role in our city.
We provide a wide range of vehicles through which you can give including a Partners programmes for businesses, bequests, and endowments. Over time a wider range of giving options will be available including diaspora or expat giving and specific projects. It all adds up, whether its five dollars, five hundred or more.
We act on behalf of those that give, as such the Christchurch Foundation will always ensure your wishes are met.
Gifts can be directed to a project, a specific geographic area or to a range of causes. Or contributions can be passed on at the discretion of the Foundation Trustees under a developed set of guidelines and policies.
