Each year we support a wide range of interests and segments of our local community. We’ve helped purchase cycling gear for Olympic hopefuls and assisted others to compete internationally; we’ve bought equipment for the local cricket, hockey and yacht clubs; and we’ve supported local schools, the Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade and Sumner Lifeboat Institute - we’re open to anything that meets the Foundation’s criteria outlined on the application form, and helps our people and our community thrive.
