Our Story

"To love and provide for others, regardless of their difference to you."

That is the unique definition of philanthropy as brainstormed in 2019 by the students of New Zealand's first Youth Philanthropy Programme, Generation Give. 

It was during that session that founders Hugh Taylor, Beatrice Onions, and Chris Belmont knew they needed to introduce more young people to the benefits of philanthropy and the associated skills involved in the process of giving. So, they created Youth Philanthropy New Zealand, the non-profit vehicle established to enable the next generation of Kiwi changemakers, and show them the benefits of using their skills to help their community.
