Meet the Graeme Dingle Foundation Marlborough - Winner of the 2019 Community Impact Award 

Community Impact Award Entrant 

Respect. Integrity. Positive relationships. Resilience. At Graeme Dingle Foundation Marlborough, they’re more than just words, they’re life-changing lessons.

Every week we work directly with over 2,300 of Marlborough’s young people, across 15 local schools and colleges:

  • Our Kiwi Can programme builds lifelong skills, positive relationships and qualities such as integrity, respect and resilience among our primary school-aged children
  • Career Navigator is our unique mentoring programme that connects college students with local industry, career pathways and eye-opening opportunities.

Our programmes develop the skillsets, attributes and values that our young people need to be successful in the workplaces and communities of the future.

Our work not only improves the social fabric of the region, but also has significant long-term economic benefits. For example, every $1 invested in the Graeme Dingle Foundation programmes gives an average $7.80 return to New Zealand.

An incredible group of committed and connected Marlborough organisations partner with us to support the young people of Marlborough. We’re almost 100 percent funded by the local community, because our partners really understand and support the value of what we do.

How about joining us in our mission of transforming even more young lives - and Marlborough - for the better?
