How do you
invest the

Māia Health Foundation has a statement of investment policy and objectives, guiding our Trustees’ stewardship of funds for the long-term.

For further detail on this policy please contact us. We’re only too happy to talk to you about our plans. 

How do you decide
which projects to

Māia works closely with our health sector partners to identify the real and relevant challenges facing our community and our health system. We then identify those projects that will have the greatest impact.

Initially, Māia selected two key projects, based on the areas of most need in the new Waipapa Christchurch Hospital building. These projects were a future-proofed helipad and enhanced child health facilities. When these two projects were drawing close to conclusion, our Board of Trustees met to consider future projects. Māia's current project, an enhanced Child and Youth Mental Health outpatients’ facility, was selected.

Each future project will be selected by Māia’s Board of Trustees.
