At Perpetual Guardian we draw on over 130 years experience in the trustee industry and manage the largest number of registered Charitable Trusts in New Zealand. It is our privilege to administer over 650 Charitable and Endowment Trusts, on behalf of the generous legacies of our clients. This translates to over $30 million per annum invested in grants and scholarships. In addition to this, we are the only trustee company in New Zealand with an innovative Foundation offering and have long-standing experience in charitable investments. At Perpetual Guardian, we are a learning organisation focused on continuous improvement and emerging practice. As such we have relationships with other leading philanthropic organisations locally in New Zealand and are members and sponsors of Philanthropy New Zealand. We are inspired by numerous international organisations such as Grantmakers for Effective Organisations and the Ford Foundation.
