Northland Community Foundation

In 2004, a group of passionate locals got together and created Northland Community Foundation: A charitable foundation for the people of Te Tai Tokerau Northland, by the people of Te Tai Tokerau Northland.

We are Northland’s Community Foundation supporting the Far North, Kaipara and Whang─ürei Districts. We are a registered charity governed by a group of experienced volunteer trustees.

Based on a successful international model, Northland Community Foundation (NCF) is one of 17 community foundations across Aotearoa New Zealand.

Community foundations have been developed to support and encourage philanthropic giving and provide individuals, families, businesses and not-for-profit organisations with an easy and satisfying way of giving back to the community they care about. Donors establish endowment funds under NCF’s legal structure and all donations are pooled and invested. The income generated from this investment is used to support charitable projects and organisations and to help build healthy resilient communities. NCF provides the tax advantages of charitable giving, the long-term benefits of endowment funding, and the ability to establish a named legacy fund set up as per the donors' wishes.
