About Cawthron Foundation
The sustainable management of New Zealand's freshwater, coastal and natural environments is one of Cawthron Institute's top priorities. Cawthron Foundation is a registered charity (charity no. CC28711) established to support the world-class, independent research developed and delivered by Cawthron to benefit New Zealand and our global environment.
Cawthron Foundation is overseen by an independent trust board chaired by Dr Morgan Williams – current chair of World Wide Fund for Nature in New Zealand and former Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment.
Cawthron Foundation provides an opportunity for you to play a part in developing science for a better world. Donations and gifts to the Foundation help Cawthron to deliver research into areas important to New Zealanders, and to support talented New Zealand scientists.
