Warm Pacific greetings!
Foundation North has a commitment to working with Pacific communities in our region. As part of our guiding principles, you can expect us to engage and work with Pacific organisations, be collaborative and innovative and acknowledge the values within our Pacific strategy.
Our Grants Advisors are available to answer your funding queries at a series of walk-ins in the community - no appointment is needed, just turn up between the times shown.
2018 dates and venues coming soon...
The Mana Moana Experience
It makes us very excited that this new Pacific leadership initiative has now been launched. Focusing on mid-career Pacific candidates, this year-long specialist programme will develop effective leaders through the vitalisation and mobilisation of indigenous Pasifika language, knowledge, values, culture, ways of knowing and viewing the world.
The inaugural 18 participants were joined for the first retreat by Leadership New Zealand staff and key speakers.
More information about the programme on the Leadership NZ website.
Pacific CEOs Network
On Friday 14 July, Foundation North hosted a Pacific Chief Executives network meeting, where participants were joined at lunchtime by the Minister for Pacific Peoples Hon. Alfred Ngaro.
If you’re a CE (or equivalent) for one of our Pacific-led grantee organisations, get in touch with us so we can tell you more. The network’s primary purpose is to provide peer-to-peer support between executive role holders. To find out the next date, contact our Pacific Strategy Manager, Jannitta.
