Your donation supported these organisations in 2020
Thanks to your care and support, over 60 grants were given to charities and agencies throughout greater Auckland to help families, people and communities in need. This need intensified with COVID-19. To respond quickly to this increase in support, the Caring Foundation brought forward the payment of grants by over two months. We wanted to better support our agencies during challenging and uncertain times. Thank you for making this happen. It’s because of you that we could help our families. Our grateful thanks also to the Tindall Foundation and the Holzer Family Trust for their financial assistance.
