Far North Betterment Fund

The Far North Betterment Fund has been set up under the umbrella of Northland Foundation, solely for the benefit of people living in the Far North area.

The Far North Betterment Fund represents donations from individuals, organisations and businesses in the Far North district who want to contribute towards a permanent legacy for the long term benefit of the Far North. Anyone can contribute and donations, gifts, bequests and endowments of all sizes are encouraged and welcomed.

The Northland Community Foundation will advise on grants. Your contribution will be pooled with others, increasing its effectiveness. The more quickly funds grow the faster the Foundation will be able to make funding available.

Brian and Rosemary Archibald and family, have made a donation towards the Far North Betterment Fund so that many more groups and individuals in the Far North can succeed. Read their donor story here:
