Our People, Our City Education Fund

Our People, Our City Education Fund

The Christchurch Foundation, at the request of the Hon. Lianne Dalziel, Mayor of Christchurch, established a fund to help raise money to support the families and Muslim communities impacted by the tragic events of 15 March 2019.

Your donation will be put into the Our People, Our City (OPOC) Education Fund.  This fund will provide support to the identified children of those killed and shot by bullets with a grant for tertiary education or vocational training at 18 years of age.

Port Hills Fire Regeneration

Port Hills Fire Regeneration

In response to the 2024 Port Hills fire this fund has been established to assist with the regeneration of endemic natives in the impacted area.

There is scientific evidence that natives are more fire resistant and can significantly contribute to the resilience and protection of at-risk ecosystems and communities.

The funds raised will be actively managed by The Christchurch Foundation and distributed with support of the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust and Te Kākahu Kahukura. These two reputable entities are already working in the impacted area and have extensive experience in the establishment of native plants in a best practice manner with participating landowners (private/public and charitable).

Funding could be applied not only to securing new plants but could also include pest management, weeding and other activities to support the regeneration of the area safely.

The intent is to help increase the fire protection on the port hills as well as also increasing the biodiversity of the area.

Join our giving circle to support women and girls in Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri. A giving circle is a form of collective giving whereby a group of people pool their individual donations and then jointly decide how and where the funds should be distributed. Individually each contribution makes an impact, but jointly it is amplified having a much greater impact in the community.
