Trusts and Foundations

The support from Trusts and Foundations is crucial to the lifesaving work of the Heart Foundation, we are incredibly grateful to all the Trusts and Foundations who partner with us to improve the heart health of New Zealanders, funding our community-based health programmes and vital cardiac research.


“Nova Charitable Trust is proud to partner with the Heart Foundation to improve the heart health of New Zealanders.  We have supported Heart Foundation for many years with funding for their crucial community care and support for people living with heart disease or recovering from a cardiac event, resources, and vital cardiac research. So many individuals and families in our communities are impacted by heart disease, and our funding is a way we can positively contribute to the vital work of the Heart Foundation, who not only provide support to families and individuals now but are also working to improve heart health outcomes for future generations.”

– Scott Errington, Public Trust
