The University of Waikato Foundation


The University of Waikato Foundation is established to raise funding for the benefit of the University of Waikato from charitable and other sources as well as through appropriate forms of entrepreneurial activity. The Foundation also exists to promote education in its widest sense.

All campaigns and activities to raise funding for the University and its constituent parts are coordinated through the Foundation. Fundraising campaigns conducted by the Foundation are those which involve a major investment by the communities to which the University looks for support.

Such campaigns are intended to enhance the academic life, general operations and facilities of the University. They include campaigns to fund major new buildings or building extensions, significant additional resources or equipment, scholarships, and visiting scholars’ funds. The Foundation’s first major campaign, The Campaign for Waikato, was launched in 1998 and by December 2000 had raised in excess of $11.0M.

The Foundation constitutes a mechanism by which the University and its constituent parts may receive gifts, bequests, donations and the like from benefactors. These may be for a particular and stated use, or may be contributions to the general purposes of the University. Naming rights to University buildings and facilities are handled by the Foundation. Funds raised by the Foundation are distributed by the Board of Trustees at its discretion. The wishes of benefactors will be respected in the allocation of funds.
