Mt Wellington Tennis Club - August 2016
On behalf of tennis across Auckland, I would like to thank the Mt Wellington Foundation and the Mt Wellington Charitable Trust for their incredible support of the works completed at the Mt Wellington Tennis Club.
This project is a fantastic example of how an existing facility can become a true community resource. The commitment and drive from Alistair and the team at the club has been fantastic, however the reality is the project simply could not happen without the support of organisations such as yours.
It will be not only tennis but a range of sports that benefit from the project that you have helped deliver. Most importantly the facility will be an asset for the community for many years to come.
With our thanks.
From Glenbrae School July - 2016
Dear Foundation Members
Thank you for the grant for which you gave approval in December 2015.
With the leasing option, this has enabled us to provide an ipad for every child in our junior school this year. We began this with our new entrant students last year, with your support, and found that, combined with carefully targeted teaching, most of our students made faster progress in their reading and mathematics than previous new entrant intakes.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Tamaki Principals' Group ICT Project. Your funding continues to provide the students of this school with up to date and engaging educational technology.

Please find enclosed the accountability and supporting information for our most recent grant towards volunteer car parking.
Known outcome or benefit to the Community: We were supported by a record 3,100 volunteers during 2015. Our amazing volunteers donated 27,312 hours of their time (the equivalent to 14 full time employees!). Of this 297 groups prepared family dinners (serving up 120 meals to family members in each sitting!).
The continued and generous support of Mt Wellington Foundation with our volunteer car parking costs means more funds went directly where they were needed ensuring each family in our care received the best quality support during their stay.
On behalf of all the volunteers, families and staff at Ronald McDonald House Auckland thank you!!

From Tamaki Community Development Trust - July 2016
Please pass on to your Trustees our grateful thanks for your kind donation to our Trust.
The schools in our community are extremely grateful for this support and service as it fills gaps where the state cannot meet the need and has assisted in keeping many children at school, who would otherwise be on the streets during the school day.
Families also benefit from this in the form of help and support from our family workers as they are shown better ways of raising and understanding their children and having someone to walk through difficult times with them where previously they would struggle alone.
Thank you for making a difference to the lives of families.

Arthritis New Zealand staff and volunteers work hard to advance the mission of improving the health and well-being of people living with arthritis. Through our services and programs we have seen many lives changed for the better.
The goal of Arthritis New Zealand is to continue to make a difference for people affected by arthritis who need our support to learn how to self-manage their arthritis condition.

On behalf of the Maungarei Community Christian Trust's board of trustees and staff we would like to say a profound thank you to your organisation for its recent grant.
Your generosity and support allows our staff to do what they passionately love to do. We are dedicated to serving the community of Mt Wellington and especially those with varying degrees of dysfunction and disadvantage.
It can be pretty tough at the 'coalface' and to know that we have the support and backing of Organisations such as yours is of great encouragement to us.
Thank you once again. We look forward to a continuing fruitful relationship.
