Who are we ?
We are a trusted, independent, not-for-profit community foundation that has registered charitable status.
We grow community impact through transformational, sustainable, bold and meaningful change in our communities, made possible by the generosity of our donors. We are a proud member of the Community Foundations of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Our Purpose
Our core purpose is to champion and grow a perpetual fund to support projects that will positively impact the communities in our region, and to contribute to our mission of helping to build a thriving Eastern Bay, truly making this an outstanding place to live, work and play.

Our trustees are faithful and dependable local people, rotated and selected to represent the geographical and physical diversity of the region. They are committed to creating the change our community needs and act in good faith to be the guardians of the funds gifted to the community, held in our care.

One of the primary objectives of the Eastern Bay Community Foundation is to make a real and long lasting difference to our region through encouraging local generosity. We work alongside those who wish to support a specific cause, passion or area of interest now and into the future.

We Build Endowment Funds
An endowment fund is an invested gift, with income going to a cause or causes of the donors choice. It enables generous people to give long term, well beyond their lifetime to a cause or a charity they care about in their local community. Endowment funds are established to support:

the arts
the preservation of taonga and heritage
strengthening communities
our natural environment
children and youth
sport and recreation

The range is limitless.

Whether you are an individual, a family or an organisation the Eastern Bay Community Foundation can work with you to achieve the difference you wish to make.

We accept one-off gifts, regular donations, and bequests. Many gifts are eligible for the current tax benefit of 33 1/3 % rebate.
