We believe in the power of giving.
The Christchurch Foundation exists to match generous people and companies to worthwhile causes.
Good ideas attract good people, and vice versa.
For those who have dreams for our city, The Christchurch Foundation makes it easier for you to make a difference. We offer a personal service for seamless giving.
You can make a general gift to Christchurch and we'll manage it for you, or you can gift to a specific cause or nominate an area of interest - the arts, education, economic development, health - it's up to you, whichever is your passion.
We'll work with you, or your professional adviser, to ensure your gift is always managed in line with your wishes.

Sports Inclusivity Fund
After the March terror attacks, the Christchurch community was left devastated. As a way to increase inclusivity, Sport Canterbury, Sport New Zealand and the Christchurch City Council are supporting greater participation in sport and physical activity amongst Christchurch’s minority groups.
Our People, Our City
At the request of the Mayor of Christchurch the Hon. Lianne Dalziel we established the Our People, Our City Fund to support the families and Muslim communities impacted by the tragic events of March 15, now and into the future.
We can assist you to form a perpetual fund to ensure your dreams for Christchurch come true. An endowment is a gift that lasts forever.
Our city has a proud history of women facilitating ground-breaking societal change. In order to recognise this, and to ensure this proud legacy continues, we have formed this fund to support women and girls in our city who are change-makers.
For expats we'll work with you, or your professional adviser, to ensure giving is seamless and is always managed in line with your wishes.
We partner with businesses to make a difference. We call it transformative giving – creating a legacy for long-term good. We offer bespoke services to our partners to match them to causes or projects that are aligned to their brand and business objectives.
