Supporting the University of Waikato
Nau mai, haere mai. Welcome to the University of Waikato Foundation. A charitable entity, the Foundation was established as an independent charitable trust supporting and resourcing the University of Waikato. Many great universities of the world have been built on a solid foundation of philanthropy, and with the support of our community, we can continue delivering a truly world-class university in the heart of New Zealand.
