Environment

We live in one of the most beautiful and environmentally diverse regions of New Zealand. Our coastline is spectacular and our podocarp forests are remarkable.

But maintaining our environmental heritage for the future is not a simple process. Many groups and organisations spend countless volunteer hours carefully making sure that what we have now will be sustained and even improved for those who come after us.

You can gift directly to the Environment Fund so your gift can be used now and you receive a 33% tax credit. Visit our donate page here https://northlandcommunityfoundation.org.nz/donate/ to donate by credit card or through your bank account. You will need to choose the Environment Fund on the drop down menu of funds.

Or we can invest your gift with Craigs Investment Partners and deliver the interest from these funds back to health services every year, forever!

You can also gift through your Will, and it can be as much or as little as you want, for example 5% to 10%. See our Legal Resources page here for more information: https://northlandcommunityfoundation.org.nz/resources/legal-resources/

Get in touch with us to discuss either of these options here: https://northlandcommunityfoundation.org.nz/contact/

Northland Community Foundation has connections with local conservation and environmental organisations. Two have set up their own endowment funds with the Foundation. Our current partners are: Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust and Puketi Forest Endowment Fund.

Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust

The Northland-based Mountains to Sea Conservation Trust (CC23406) was established in 2002, as a charitable umbrella and support organisation for the Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) marine education and Whitebait Connection (WBC) freshwater education programmes. These are both leading models in education for sustainability in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Puketi Forest Endowment Fund

The Puketi Forest Endowment Fund has been set up under the umbrella of the Northland Foundation, for the maintenance and restoration of Puketi Forest.
