Are you our next Kate?
Our city has a proud tradition of women facilitating ground-breaking societal change. In order to recognise this, and to ensure that this proud legacy continues, we formed a fund to support women and girls in our city who are change makers.
We’re honoured to receive 100% of all ticket profits of this sold-out Christchurch show. They donated the whole lot to Our People Our City Fund to help the victims of the March 15 terror attacks.
We are now in the middle of our Listening Project for Our People, Our City where the next of kin of the deceased, those that were shot and all other members of the Muslim communities of Christchurch are being asked to provide us with recommendations as to how the funds raised should be used.
We have also been reaching out around the world and New Zealand to other entities that have supported communities post a tragic event or terror attack to learn what we can from them.
We celebrated the launch of our UK Chapter at the New Zealand High Commission on the 4th of July in London.
We are pleased to announce that The Christchurch Foundation has received several large gifts from corporates and individuals outside of the Our People, Our City Fund.
The Christchurch Foundation today announced the establishment of an Advisory Group to listen to the Victims and Muslim communities, collate the feedback and present a set of recommendations to the trustees of the Foundation for the use of the Our People, Our City Fund.
The conclusion of Victim Support’s distribution of funds to the victims of the March 15 attacks based on their emergency short term needs today, marks the beginning of The Christchurch Foundation’s activity.
