FUNDING STORIES

Christmas Giving

Craigs Investment Partners has recently announced nationally the establishment of a new Community giving initiative, formalised through the establishment of the Craigs Community Fund.  This incorporates Christmas Gifting; the establishment of a Community Fund in partnership with local community foundations; and Workplace Giving, which empowers Craigs employees to personally gift to local charities, supported by the Craigs business that will match their personal contribution – up to $500 per year, per employee.  This is a wonderful example of philanthropy at both an individual and a corporate level and will be much appreciated by the beneficiaries.

Through the generosity of Craigs in Gore, the Clutha Foundation was gifted $1500 in November 2019 which was distributed to local foodbanks within the Clutha district to support families through what can be a very challenging time of year. 

This partnership between Craigs Investment Partners and local Community Foundations across New Zealand will continue to benefit local communities for many years to come.
