First Light Community Foundation
First Light Community Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation, based in Hawke’s Bay, which raises funds through the operation of gaming machines at hotels and taverns.
First Light returns 100% of the funding generated from its venues to the local communities from which the funding was generated. First Light currently has venues located in Hastings and Wairoa.
The Lion Foundation
The Lion Foundation is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most respected Charitable Trusts. Since 1988 we have returned over $850 million back to the community, supporting thousands of good causes all around New Zealand.
We have many Lion Foundation venues and gaming machines across the country and we consistently return millions of dollars into the community. Last year that equated to over $36 million through over 3,500 grants for community-based organisations across New Zealand.
Trust House is a community-owned company. Our aim is to enhance the wellbeing of people in our region, by funding local events and organisations and running great local businesses.
We value our New Zealand way, and respect, celebrate and support our cultural diversity through our dedicated team who help eligible organisations make a difference in their communities.
