Trusts Community Foundation
With a mission to provide funding for a wide range of clubs, charities and community groups, The Trusts Community Foundation was established in June 2010 and each year gives away more than $12 million dollars to the community. We are very appreciative of the strong support The Trusts Community Foundation has provided to the Well Foundation. Most recently the trust made a grant towards the first new mobile health clinic and in 2014 helped us reach the final target on our first major project, raising $125k to purchase an Ultrasound Procedural Training Unit.

The SKYCITY Auckland Community Trust is proud to contribute to the local community of Auckland by supporting many worthy organisations, both large and small. To date, SKYCITY Auckland Community Trust has granted over $38.6 million to more than 2,210 charitable organisations that have undertaken community assistance and development work in the greater Auckland area. We received a grant from the trust in 2016 towards a second mobile health clinic which will enable Waitemata DHB public health nurses to reach more children and families in need across our region.
John Franich Jewellers
The team at John Franich Jewellers has brought warmth and comfort to many families in need over the past few years. In 2014, they put a call out to customers and kind-hearted donors to drop off new children’s pyjamas which were distributed through the hospital and in the community to those that needed them. In 2015, this collection became the "Army of Jammies" appeal which is now run annually and has collected over 600 pairs of children's pyjamas. John Franich Jewellers also sponsor a quarterly prize for the Well Foundation to recognise Waitemata DHB staff members who have shown them great support. John Franich Jewellers is a family owned business which has two retail stores, one at Westfield West City and more recently have opened a store at the NorthWest Shopping Centre.
ProCare Charitable Foundation
ProCare Charitable Foundation launched their inaugural grant funding programme in 2015 and we were grateful to be one of the six charities to receive funding. Funding was put towards the new mobile health clinic which will enable Waitemata DHB public health nurses to reach more children and families in need. The ProCare Charitable Foundation purpose is to help promote or deliver health-related activities that improve a community’s wellbeing, or reduces health inequalities and alleviates deprivation in the Greater Auckland region.
Takapuna Beach Business Association
Since its inception in 1948, the Takapuna Beach Business Association (TBBA) has been a pillar for local businesses and the community. As an Incorporated Society, the TBBA is funded primarily by commercial ratepayers of the Takapuna Beach Business Improvement District Area. With Takapuna being right in our Well Foundation region and just a stone's throw from North Shore Hospital, we were proud to become the Charity of Choice for TBBA in 2016 and have been grateful recipients of their fundraising efforts in this time.
