Iron Bridge Foundation. Empowering individuals and communities.

About us

The Iron Bridge Foundation is a charitable Trust, created by the Iron Bridge Property Group.

Helping people is at the heart of what Iron Bridge does as an organisation and making a positive, lasting contribution to the communities we work in is important to us.

The Foundation is our way of supporting and empowering people in our communities that need financial assistance to achieve their goals.

What we fund

Our mission is to help young New Zealanders have a better quality of life, make the most of their talents and fulfil their ambitions.

We believe that a hand up has much greater impact than a hand out, so our focus is on funding the practical things that individuals and groups need to succeed in achieving their goals.

The funding we provide is targeted at youth and generally falls into two categories:

Community groups

Practical funding for youth-focussed community groups that helps them enhance and increase the services they offer.


Practical funding for talented young people who are working hard to realise specific goals.

“With funding from The Iron Bridge Foundation, I was able to travel to Australia to compete in the Tour of Adelaide. Thanks to the exposure I got on this trip I have since been signed by a professional cycling team – an amazing opportunity!”
