Tindall Foundation


REAP Wairarapa is the Tindall Foundation funding manager for our region. We work closely with our neighbours at Tararua REAP to administer this fund on behalf of the Foundation.

The philosophy of The Tindall Foundation is to provide assistance to heal problems rather than manage them – that is to give “a hand up not a hand out”. The Trustees have preference for projects that assist groups and communities to meet their own needs by better using their own resources in sustainable ways. Particular emphasis is placed on innovation, partnerships, links to other organisations and the community, multiple funding sources and ongoing sustainability when Tindall Foundation funding ceases.

The Tindall Foundation’s funding area through us as funding managers is…

Supporting families and social services

  • Early Years
  • Youth Development
