About Us

Northland Community Foundation is a charitable Foundation established for Northland, our people and our causes that are important to us. The Foundation invests funds on behalf of people, charities or businesses that would like to donate back to Northland charitable causes forever. We invest the funds with our local investment advisors, Craigs Investment Partners, and deliver the interest back to the chosen charitable cause each year. This creates a legacy for the donor and the chosen charity. The Foundation also provides ‘Living Giving’ options for donors including direct donations to charitable causes, and payroll giving.

Northland Community Foundation is a member of Community Foundations NZ and the Fundraising Institute of NZ. We have established endowment funds with the Northland District Health Board, Sport Northland, Volunteering Northland, and many more.
