$2M BOOST FROM TRUST
The Ponsonby-based ASB Community Trust approved $2 million in funding over five years to support Lifewise.
Its new Centre for Social Impact (CSI) is helping the non-profit organisation to move the response to homelessness from a charitable model towards providing opportunities.
The independent grant- making trust supports the work of not-for-profit groups in Auckland and Northland. CSI was founded this year to support major social investments by philanthropic trusts, organisations and government initiatives.
