The Cardrona Foundation

Ko ahau te Maunga, ko te Maunga ko ahau
I am the mountain, & the mountain is me

Here at Cardrona, we have a special connection to our people, our mountain & our future. We have a culture of genuine respect for all who come here, all who have been, & all who will come here in years to come. We know that we are the kaitiaki (guardians) of our maunga (mountain), & we are working to fulfil this role every day.

We want to deepen this connection & take it to a whole new level. That’s why we have launched the Cardrona Foundation – an organisation of guardianship, protection & conservation.

We are in a unique position to be an advocate for worthy causes & support a stronger community. We want to start a cycle of giving, well-being, & conservation that ripples through our community to make our place, people & future as good as they possibly can be.

We currently have three major Foundation projects:
