Kairūri means ‘surveyor’ in Māori which makes it a fitting name for our first charitable trust - our aim is to foster the future of the surveying and spatial community.
After several years of planning, the Kairūri Community Trust was set up in 2017 and launched at the annual NZIS conference held in Nelson, New Zealand in May 2018.
Knowing which program your donation will support is an important part of being involved in the surveying and spatial community. We will support causes that are currently under-funded or in need of economic backing to make them flourish in the New Zealand economy.
Programs are being developed to help our communities stay ahead of career trends. The proposition: Our donors and contributors feel pride in empowering our community to be part of the surveying and spatial focus.
