The Goodman Foundation aims to improve the quality of life, standard of living and health of people in the communities where it operates.

The focus is on social change and improving the lives of those less privileged. This is achieved by providing financial support, including cash grants and ongoing funding for projects and programmes that meet the objectives of the foundation.

Through the Goodman Foundation and work place gifting we have provided around $300,000 of sponsorship and donations over the last 12 months. We have also contributed to local organisations through volunteering and in-kind programmes. Our partnerships with KiwiHarvest, The Rising Foundation, Duffy Books in Homes, The Hearing House and the Second Nature Charitable Trust, are continuing to make a meaningful difference to our communities. Other charities including, ADC New Zealand, the Cerebral Palsy Society of NZ, Diabetes New Zealand, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of New Zealand and Ronald MacDonald House are also recipients of our financial support.
