Mō mātou – Our Organisation

Supporting the communities of today to shape the communities of tomorrow

Foundation North holds in trust for the communities of Auckland and Northland an endowment of over a billion dollars.  This positions us uniquely to fund around $40m each year to not-for profit initiatives in our region.

Our vision is Enhanced Lives.  To achieve our vision, we aim to be responsive to the changing community needs and aspirations through the four focus areas in our funding framework:

  • Hāpai te Ōritetanga – Increased Equity
  • Whakauru Mai – Social Inclusion
  • Whakahou Taiao – Regenerative Environment
  • Hāpori Awhina – Community Support

Over the last 30 years, we have assisted hundreds of organisations through grants aimed at creating positive outcomes and enhanced lives for the communities of Auckland and Northland.  While we will continue our traditional community support funding, our focus will increasingly be on working in partnership with community stakeholders and other funders to achieve projects of greater scale and impact that reflect community aspirations.

Ō Tātou Uara – Our Values

Our values unite us as an organisation and guide how we work every day.  Our values are:

  1. Kia kotahi te hoe – Working together

  3. Whakamana – Enabling, uplifting and reinforcing
  4. Ako – Listening, learning and understanding
