Foundation awards hard working organisations
Organisations from across New Zealand were honoured for their outstanding contribution to the community and environment at a ceremony at Government House in Auckland tonight.
The event, hosted by Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae, saw special recognition awards presented by the Tindall Foundation to five “exceptional organisations and influencers”.
The New Zealand Housing Foundation (NZHF) was given the award for outstanding contribution to the local community, acknowledging its work developing affordable houses for low income families.
Stephen Tindall, who founded his family’s philanthropic foundation with wife Margaret 20 years ago, said the NZHF had given many people the chance to own their own home and improve their quality of life.
