Craigs Community Fund & Workplace giving

Learn more about the Community Fund and which charities each of our local branches have supported.

As long-time supporters of communities across the country, Craigs Investment Partners has established a community giving initiative in partnership with Community Foundations of New Zealand.

Donations to support the greatest needs in each of the 19 communities in which Craigs has regional branches are made in conjunction with one of the 17 community foundations found around New Zealand, where possible.

Giving Committees in each Craigs branch will liaise with their local community foundation to choose a meaningful recipient in their local area.
