Working in partnership to support the next phase of recovery

Auckland Council is proudly working in partnership with Auckland Foundation to support the recovery of Tāmaki Makaurau by launching a new fund.

As our region moves into the next phase of recovery, the Auckland Together Fund will contribute to the medium to long-term recovery efforts by supporting experienced organisations who are providing frontline support.

Auckland Council's Director of Governance and CCO Partnerships Phil Wilson acknowledges that it is still a challenging time for communities that have been affected by the recent weather events. 

“We know recovery will take some time and our primary focus continues to be supporting our impacted communities.

“We’re proud to work alongside Auckland Foundation to accelerate our recovery efforts and help communities get back on their feet as quickly as possible.”

Auckland Foundation Chair Ian Short says the purpose of the new fund is to help Auckland communities recover and rebuild.   

“With tens of thousands of Aucklanders significantly affected by the recent storms, we have launched the Auckland Together Fund, with support from our partner Auckland Council. The fund will provide wraparound support for those most impacted.

“These impacts are severe now and will be for many months and years ahead for already vulnerable families and communities. The fund’s focus is on alleviating stress now and building resilience for the future.”

We are asking Aucklanders to donate to the Auckland Together Fund to provide wraparound support and tools to help whānau and communities lift themselves up and thrive.

All funds raised will be managed under Auckland Foundation's established charitable trust framework. Funds will be distributed by Auckland Foundation, working with an independent steering committee, to experienced frontline organisations who are working with impacted communities.
