Philanthropy Programme

"Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind, and spirit.”

B.K.S. Iyengar

The desire to give back is what makes us human, and is embedded in the kiwi culture. Those who enjoy financial independence have a chance to truly make a difference.

Health Research Foundation – Hawke’s Bay expertly allocates funds to essential research in the areas of medical, physical or mental health. We connect research teams with the most relevant medical experts in their field of research, and receive reporting at the start, the middle and the end of each research undertaken.

Though our foundation is rooted in Hawke’s Bay, we open research applications nationwide. This ensures we optimise the quality of researchers we attract, and maximises the quality impact the research outcome has on health in our community.
