The Branch Foundation was founded in July 2007. We are a small yet highly motivated and passionate New Zealand based not-for-profit international organisation. As an International fundraiser, we support local organisations to provide aid and financial assistance for ethnic minorities, refugees, and underprivileged people. We work with organisations that are outside the scope of main humanitarian aid and support communities that otherwise would get little or no support. The community members of our partner organisations work with us to establish their most urgent needs. They are the agents of change, that strive for quality of well being, independence and stability; we simply support their quest for a brighter future. Our strategic goals on welfare/poverty relief, sustainable community development and education, with the long-term objective of self-reliance, are the focus of our work with our partner organisations. We pride ourselves for being accountable and transparent.
