We seek to find long term charity partners to work with in achieving our purpose of investing in the future of Aotearoa, New Zealand by creating opportunities for generations to follow.
Specifically, we partner with charities who can provide measurable impact in our three pillar focus areas of youth, education and the environment. Alignment with at least one of our pillars is crucial to a partnership with the Milford Foundation and an alignment with more than one of our pillar criteria, having an even greater appeal.
The Foundation will look to partner with charities that are able to articulate and demonstrate their ability to deliver on their charitable mission. They should preferably either offer or aspire to offer, these services throughout New Zealand.
Our rangatahi and mokopuna are the future leaders and guardians of Aotearoa. We will work with charitable partners who see the value in our youth, harnessing their energy, and providing them with the opportunities to play an integral role in the growth of our country now and in the future.
Every New Zealander has the right to a good education so that the dreams and ambitions they set for themselves can be realised. We support those working to enhance education and provide knowledge for the youth of Aotearoa, allowing them the freedom of choice for a prosperous future. In a highly targeted fashion, the Foundation will partner with charitable organisations specifically addressing the widening achievement gap currently found in the education system.
The environment plays a vital role on life in Aotearoa. That's why we are committed to working with like-minded charitable partners who work hard to safeguard our natural environment, particular as it pertains to how we manage, minimise and mitigate the impacts of waste in our broader environment.
What is the societal need that is being addressed by the charity and its programme that is seeking Milford Foundation funding?
This should be a quantifiable problem with baseline indicators that the charity is trying to improve.
What is the targeted outcome for the charity or the programme?
This must be clear, simple and bold and be able to be summarised succinctly. There should be 1-3 key measures to assess progress with the key being whether they help progress towards the target.
The target should incorporate a starting baseline and an expected positive shift or change through the programme as well as the key assumptions to achieve this.
