The Aoraki Foundation is a Charitable Community Foundation created by and for the people of the Aoraki Region that serves as a vehicle to connect people who care with causes that matter. Community Foundations are a popular choice for donors because of the services they provide in finding matches between donor interests and community needs.
“Donors do not give to a Community Foundation, they give to their community . . . through a community foundation”.
Community Foundations bring stability to the non-profit arena; they allow flexibility in accepting gifts and establishing funds that satisfy the charitable needs of donors; and they provide efficient and effective financial stewardship, in perpetuity
