The Stonelake Foundation is a philanthropic Family Foundation based in the Otago / Southland region of New Zealand that partners with like minded organisations and charities to enable positive change in our communities.

    We believe that all New Zealanders should have the opportunity to live happy and healthy lives – enabling others now and future generations to benefit from the decisions and actions we take today.



The Foundation provides a platform and a voice for a diverse range of organisations and charities to raise funds and awareness that contribute to supporting those in need.
We assist organisations and community groups, to support them in their work to build a strong and prosperous New Zealand for future generations.
The key objectives of the Foundation are:

To provide support, both financial and otherwise, for community organisations and for charitable purposes.

To promote and encourage generosity among the people of New Zealand for the benefit of community organisations and charitable initiatives.

The Stonelake Foundation is proud to be the Highlander’s official charity partner.


How the Stonelake Foundation’s official charity partnership with the Highlanders can assist your charitable organisations fundraising efforts.

Any New Zealand charity/organisation may apply to be the official game day charity at an upcoming Highlanders home game.

The chosen charity will have the opportunity to:

  • Raise funds at the game through donation buckets and selling match day team sheets (by way of gold coin donation);
  • Receive $1 of every ticket sold, using a specially created promo code;
  • Raise awareness of their charity/organisation via social media platforms and on game day big screens;
  • In addition, the Stonelake Foundation will contribute $1,000 to the chosen charity/organisation for every home game.

Please note:

  • There is an expectation that the chosen charity/organisation will provide volunteers to gather collections at the game.
  • The charity/organisation is required to provide digital/creative assets two weeks prior to game day (see details here).
  • Within 14 days after the game, provide an update of outcomes and feedback from this initiative.



Stonelake Foundation and the Highlanders can support your charity or organisation by lending a helping hand.

Do you have a community project coming up in December that could use an extra pair of hands (or 10!)?

The Stonelake Foundation and the Highlanders invite you to learn more as your project might be one of the lucky projects chosen to get a helping hand from the Highlanders.


We look forward to hearing from you
