Engaging with and supporting various groups in the communities where we operate is fundamental for a business focused on long-term relationships and sustainable growth.
The Goodman Foundation supports social initiatives that aim to improve the quality of life, health and education, and standard of living of the people within our neighbourhoods. It is funded by the Manager with no direct costs borne by the Trust.
Through the Foundation and other fundraising, we have provided almost $400,000 of financial support over the last 12 months. We have also contributed to local organisations through the donation of equipment, volunteering and in-kind programmes.
Our relationships with KiwiHarvest, Cerebral Palsy Society of NZ, Duffy Books in Homes, The Rising Foundation, The Hearing House and the Second Nature Charitable Trust are continuing to make a meaningful difference to our communities.
This year we also added Great Potentials and the Tania Dalton Foundation to our list of partnerships.
Further contributions were made to ADC New Zealand, Cure Kids, Diabetes New Zealand, Life Centre Trust, Middlemore Hospital Audiology, Movember, Multiple Sclerosis Society of New Zealand and Ronald McDonald House.
