Endowment

We can help you create a perpetual giving fund to ensure your dreams for Christchurch can be achieved. An endowment is a donation that keeps on giving to your chosen causes year after year.

Setting up your own endowment fund is easy. You can start small and build up a fund overtime. Once you reach $100,000 you can begin making gifts, or keep building it up.

Your fund is invested and grown, and the ongoing income earned goes to the local causes you love. The original donation remains protected so it can continue to benefit your chosen causes forever into the future. 

This giving model means that invested funds go further by enabling your generosity to have ongoing impact in the Christchurch community.

You may want to give across a broad range of causes, or perhaps there is an issue passion or local area that interests you. Your endowment will build a permanent funding stream, achieving long term community transformation.

Every size of donation is welcome at The Christchurch Foundation. An easy and effective way is to simply make a gift, large or small, into the Christchurch Fund. We use our knowledge of what is happening in Christchurch communities to ensure that grants go where they are most needed and will have the biggest impact.
