Tauawhitia Trust

Tauawhitia Trust

Increasing access to family-oriented, inclusive physical activity by working to match donors with those in need.


We are a registered charity founded by people who have enjoyed and seen the benefits of family-oriented, inclusive physical activity. We work to match donors with those in need and welcome discussions on how the Trust can help communities increase participation in physical activities

Core beliefs:

1) Physical activity is key to healthy lifestyles, can be fun, empowering, welcoming, family-friendly and inclusive.

2) New Zealanders across all ages, abilities and sectors can join in and benefit from community-led activities.

3) We believe that communities can recognise their own needs and their specific barriers to participation. The best solutions can often be delivered locally and targeted to needs that may not be met by traditional funding sources.

4) Within communities people are willing to donate time and money, but often lack the mechanisms to do so. The Tauawhitia Trust was formed to make it easy for people within a community to donate and combine funds and for event organisers to request funding for specific needs.


1) Promote physical activity and community involvement

2) Advance and support children, young people and their families in New Zealand to facilitate involvement in their communities through participation in physically active and healthy lifestyle activities

3) Advance and support charitable community and voluntary organisations in New Zealand

4) Encourage and promote charitable giving in New Zealand.
