For Purpose, For Passion, For Social Change.

Not-for-profit organisations are significant amongst our membership and within our community. We want to lift the profile of this valued sector and facilitate connections between business and not-for-profit.


In developing this initiative we are working with The Wheelhouse. This is a regional community organisation that empowers Taranaki community groups to become more sustainable - www.wheelhouse.org.nz 

By working together we hope to continue to develop opportunities for businesses and community organisations to develop positive relationships.


If you are a not-for-profit organisation contact Maura Young at maura@taranakichamber.co.nz to find out about this initiative and how you can boost your profile.
