Louisa and Patrick Emmett Murphy Foundation

The Foundation was established to provide for the benefit of charitable organisations within New Zealand. The Settlor’s intention was to support a range of charitable causes predominantly in the Auckland area (as defined by the Auckland Super City boundaries – broadly from Wellsford to Pukekohe). To be eligible, organisations must benefit people within the Auckland area by:

  • Providing assistance and care for terminally ill people in our community.
  • Improving the quality of life for our older people in our community.
  • Providing assistance and care for people suffering from illness in our community.


Applications open in June and close on the 31st of July annually.
