Te Karaka Foundation is the charitable foundation established for Taranaki, our people and the causes that are important to us.
Through giving we positively impact the community and contribute to our mission of helping build a thriving Taranaki; an outstanding place to live, learn, work and play, now and for generations to come.
By 2025 we aim to distribute $450,000 each year in local grants.
Whether you are an individual, family or organisation Te Karaka Foundation provides you with a personal and enduring way to support the causes close to your home and close to your heart.
We’re part of a network of Community Foundations that have been growing around Aotearoa New Zealand since 2003. Through the coordination of the Community Foundations of New Zealand (our national body), we’re all working to provide resources that will make a lasting difference in our local communities. Our aim is for every New Zealander to be able to affect lasting change wherever their home or heart may be.
