We work with:
- Families, supporting parents to grow their skills in early childhood education through programmes like SKIP, and positive parenting.
- Local schools to develop specialist programmes for children that support the New Zealand Curriculum – like reading assistance, music and kapa haka. We also hold a comprehensive science resource library for local schools and teachers to access.
- Individuals of all ages to give them the skills in areas from finance and computers to health and wellbeing so they can get involved in the economic and social life of our region.
We deliver a wide variety of professional and personal development courses, workshops, and programmes in addition to adult learning opportunities.
Tindall Foundation Funding Round Open for Applications
The philosophy of The Tindall Foundation is to provide assistance to heal problems rather than manage them - that is to give “a hand up not a hand out”. The Trustees have preference for projects that assist groups and communities to meet their own needs by better using their own resources in sustainable ways. Particular emphasis is placed on innovation, partnerships, links to other organisations and the community, multiple funding sources and ongoing sustainability when Tindall Foundation funding ceases.
The Tindall Foundation’s funding for our area is focused on supporting families and social services.
The key areas for support are:
- Early Years
- Youth Development
- Migrant, Refugees and Cross Cultural
- Literacy and Numeracy
- Community Services and Development
Please note that we are not able to fund initiatives with a focus on health, disability, core education, sport and recreation, drama art or performing arts.
