Stephen Tindall helped launch New Zealand’s newest Community Foundation – Momentum Foundation – last week in Hamilton. Momentum has been set up so people in the Waikato community can contribute to their region and invest in building a better future for their children and grandchildren.

Momentum is part of a growing movement of Community Foundations that seek to pool resources and reinvest them directly back in to the communities they came from. The Foundation’s priority is to build up capital funds that will be prudently invested. The aim is to build a $300m fund over 30 years, by promoting and encouraging philanthropy in the community.

Momentum plans to fund projects of significance that provide multi-generational benefit for the people of Waikato.
