OVER OUR HISTORY
At the Hugh Green Foundation, we are a big believer in building long-term resilient partnerships with the organisations we fund. Rather than supporting many and multiple causes the approach is about focussing our giving where it matters most to achieve greater results.
Through deeper, high trust relationships we look to work on projects that will leave a legacy within the organisations we support. This approach means we can work alongside grantees in a collaborative way to ensure we stay nimble and relevant, adapting funding and projects as issues and needs emerge. Based on this model we are hugely proud of the organisations we have provided $10 million in funding since the foundation was established over 20 years ago. Over that time, with our support, our grantees have done some truly great things from setting up world first brain research hubs to clearing pathways for young South Aucklanders for a better education. At the heart of it all is the importance of family and communities, two fundamental drivers for both the foundation and the man it was named after - Hugh Green.
