The Plunket Foundation was established in recognition of Plunket’s centenary year.
The Foundation’s mission is to seek donations from caring New Zealanders who can help the Foundation to add to Plunket’s ability to lead in the delivery of care and support for families and young children in the future.
The Plunket Foundation won’t replace Plunket’s existing funding sources. It will support vital research and development, and fund projects that will deliver positive outcomes for children, families and communities in New Zealand.
Contributions to the Plunket Foundation will help establish an endowment fund to support initiatives that Plunket would otherwise not be able to resource.
The Plunket Foundation has been registered as a charitable trust with the Charities Commission. The Foundation Trust Deed sets out the structure and intent of the trust.
