Community Foundations - A new way of thinking

The charity sector is changing and communities are looking for smarter ways to manage community funds. Generous locals are looking for an easy way to leave a personal local legacy. Having an all-encompassing, well-governed structure for communities, simply makes a lot of sense.


"Just as many of the great challenges of our time are too big to be tackled in isolation, so too can philanthropic efforts be collectivised for the common goods of our communities. There are significant benefits to be gained from the charitable sector moving steadily towards a more collaborative model, like that offered by local Community Foundations."

Community Foundations of New Zealand have been delighted to team up with Dentons Kensington Swan team, to co-write this White Paper: Community Foundations - a new way of thinking about charity, philanthropy and working with clients.
