About us


To support our communities to build a thriving, inclusive and equitable Taranaki.

Kia toka ia nei te ara whakakaha i te hapori, kia toitū te whenua, kia toitū te tangata, kia toitū te maunga.


We are a philanthropic organisation with annual grant making that runs into the millions – supporting Taranaki in traditional, philanthropic ways, while also looking to the future with a focus on strategic and innovative granting and impact investing to achieve even greater long-term, transformational and positive benefits for our communities and environment.

As an organisation, our purpose, strategy and operations are guided by four values – collaborative, focused, integrity and innovative.

Toi Foundation is committed to reducing economic and social disparities by funding where there is the greatest need.

Our investments | pūtea penapena

Toi Foundation (formerly TSB Community Trust) has a holding company that owns and monitors the Foundation’s key assets:

  • A 100% shareholding in TSB Bank Limited, and
  • A 66% (controlling) share in Fisher Funds Management Limited.


Each year, TSB and Fisher Funds pay dividends to the holding company. The holding company then pays dividends to Toi Foundation. These dividends enable the Foundation to complete its philanthropic work.
Therefore, if people bank with TSB and have their KiwiSaver with Fisher Funds, they contribute in a supportive and measurable way to our community.

We're proud to have contributed over $200M to Taranaki people and projects.
As a vital part of our region for over 35 years, the Foundation is pleased to reached this milestone. Thanks to income growth achieved by our investments, we’ve not only reached this milestone earlier than expected, we’ve also significantly increased funding available to our communities.
