CFNZ is an umbrella body to support the establishment and growth of Community Foundations across the country.

Membership of CFNZ means that our community foundation meets professional standards of best practice. We are governed by a local Board, are community-focused and are striving to build a permanent endowment fund which will benefit our local community, forever.

There are 15 Community Foundations in New Zealand, with a number of others in the planning stages.

Community Foundations of New Zealand are part of a global movement of place-based philanthropy, one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy in the world.
