2021 Grassroots Giving Programme Recipients

Grassroots organisations play a crucial role in keeping our communities connected and thriving. We are pleased to announce this years' recipients.


Grassroots organisations are often small, out-of-sight groups that make communities hum. 

The Grassroots Giving Programme supports Tāmaki Makaurau community groups and charitable organisations that prioritise whānau/families who experience multiple disadvantage across generations.

Auckland Foundation is exicted to be supporting 25 grassroots organisations for 2021.

This year, there are a wide variety of recipient organisations and a range of different community priorities. Some of the focus areas are family & women's support and abuse help & prevention.  

Each of the organisations have a strong collaborative and hollistic focus with whānau at the forefront. They also show a strong sense of long-term/sustainable thinking at the core of their values, enabling them to continue supporting their communities for years to come.

We are excited to see the good work of these organisations continue throughout the year ahead. Keep an eye on Auckland Foundation social media to stay up to date with the brilliant mahi these organisations are doing across our city.

We would like to thank all of our Grassroots donors and the Tindall Foundation, who we are proud to be a Local Donation Manager for, for providing foundation and support that allows these important organisations to thrive.
