On April 14th the Aoraki Foundation held a Public Meeting at the Aigantighe Art Gallery. The event was to mark the launch of a new look and to promote the Foundation's main focus going forward, endowment giving.
We were fortunate to have John McCarthy, manager The Tindall Foundation speaking. John's speech on behalf of Sir Stephen and Lady Margaret Tindall was inspiring, emphasising the power of catalytic philanthropy.
Also the event gave the South Canterbury Health Endowment Fund an opportunity to formally announce those groups that recently received grants from the fund.
