Who we support

We work with a wide range of not-for-profit community organisations which collectively have a positive impact on nearly every Rotorua resident.

To ensure our funds make a real and positive difference to our community, we are continuing to revise our core focus areas, which are currently the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, whanau and families, aged, education, transition to workforce, health, housing, vibrancy, and crime and reintegration.

Check out our news section or read our annual reports to see what great causes we have supported lately.

Bay Brighter Futures

We are a partner of Bay Brighter Futures, which is a collaboration of government agencies and philanthropic funders working in the Bay of Plenty Region. Alongside Ministry of Social Development, the Ministry of Youth Development, the Bay of Plenty Community Response Forum, Bay Trust, Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust and the Department of Internal Affairs, we aim to make a difference in the lives of children and youth.

Bay Brighter Futures is a gateway to funding: where one funder may only be able to fund a proportion of the project, other Bay Brighter Futures funders may be able to step in to support as well.
