Many of today’s philanthropists are thinking local, striving to meet the needs of their hometowns first, where the impact can be seen and felt among neighbours, communities and suburbs.
Working with generous people to increase our impact, including those overseas, is a key area of work for The Christchurch Foundation.
One of the best ways you can support our city is to join our “giving while living” programme. It’s an alternative way to donate rather than leaving a gift in your will and is a style of philanthropy that suits some donors well.
The first individual donor to The Christchurch Foundation wishes to remain anonymous and is happy to share her story.
Southbase built Tūranga and has also gifted to this incredible facility.
Spark was one of the first businesses to join our City Partners programme with a gift to Tūranga Library. Read more here about their motivation.
