Pearl of the Islands Foundation (PIF) works towards its Mission through community engagement and intercultural events. Additional to the costs associated with organising these events, outgoings for our organisation include staff salaries, community centre/office rent, travel expenses, and other costs.
Our principal funder is Little Pearls Educare Centres (which are owned by PIF).
PIF also receives grants from a number of governmental and non-governmental organisations. We are also grateful to the generosity of our members and ordinary New Zealanders who donate on a regular and one-off basis.
Additional to the funding we have received from these wonderful groups, some of our events are partially funded by the partnering organisations.
