The Geyser Community Foundation exists for the purpose of ensuring charitable gifts in the Rotorua and Taupo districts are managed as originally intended.

People can leave money for the benefit of the Rotorua and Taupo communities generally, or set up their own named endowment fund and direct how the funds are to be allocated.

Funds are invested and the capital retained in perpetuity. Every year the income earned on the capital is made available for charitable distribution. This means that gifts keep giving forever and the total amount of the gift will, over time, far exceed the original capital donation. This is a very powerful way for individuals, families or organisations to provide long-term benefits to local communities.

Chris is honoured to have been appointed and looks forward to helping the Geyser Community Foundation continue building up permanent endowment funds for the long-term benefit of the Rotorua and Taupo district communities.

Appointed by the New Zealand Law Society Waikato Bay of Plenty Branch, Chris replaces Rotorua lawyer, Helen Nathan, who was an inaugural trustee.
