What we fund
We are contributing to a stronger New Zealand by making donations in six Programme Areas. Under each of these, we have a number of different areas in which we focus our donations. Applications are assessed according to their alignment to our goals and their relevance to our Programme Areas.
The Tindall family and Trustees have chosen these areas of priority and focus because they are important to our values and philosophy. As a philanthropic family foundation, we have limited budget and therefore choose to support areas where we feel we can make the greatest difference.
What we don’t fund
Unfortunately we can’t support every initiative or organisation, even though there are so many worthwhile applications. Please read our Exclusions before applying for a donation, as we don’t want to waste your time.
Requests for funding are subject to a 4-step process. There is no closing date for applications. However, because we do not consider urgent or retrospective applications, we recommend that you submit your request at least four months before you need the donation. If your application is referred to one of our Funding Managers, there may be a closing date associated with that organisation.
