How Funds Work

How Giving Through Te Awa Works

Te Awa Community Foundation supports organisations and groups by 
building and growing local funding that will benefit the local community, forever. 

We encourage local public generosity and connect these people to local causes that matter. 

Gifts and donations to Te Awa Community Foundation are invested and the interest gained on those
gifts are given back to the local community for charitable purposes.

The original gift remains invested for future generations. For local organisations and charitable causes
this provides diversity to their funding streams and adds a sustainable funding option.

Giving Made Simple

There are many ways to give - speak to our team to discuss
the best way of giving that suits you. 

"Community Foundations focus on a place and its people, strengthening communities from within 
and enabling local aspirations for their community to take shape. They are governed
by super passionate and skilled local volunteer Boards and committees."
