Rutherford Rede Clients

Our Community Focus

We actively contribute to our local community and support a range of charities. We are proud to be associated with the following organisations.

Dementia New Zealand

Jocelyn Weatherall is Chair of Dementia New Zealand and Dementia Auckland. We have a long history of working with Dementia New Zealand and providing voluntary consultancy to newly diagnosed dementia sufferers.


First Foundation

We support First Foundation to assist academically talented students to achieve their potential through tertiary education and to prepare them to positively influence and benefit their communities. Funding is derived from trailing commissions received from KiwiSaver providers. 

Maria Mahoni is one of the Rutherford Rede scholars that has graduated through this programme. Here she discusses how she has grown as a person and the amazing support she received from her mentor, thanks to First Foundation.


Macular Degeneration

Henry Ford is Chair of Macular Degeneration New Zealand. Their mission is to reduce the incidence and lower the impact of macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of blindness in New Zealand. 


Rotary Club

Phil Ashton and Henry Ford are involved in various Rotary Clubs throughout Auckland and have held Chair, President, and Governor roles. Members are business and professional leaders who volunteer in their communities, and carry out humanitarian projects to address issues such as poverty, health, hunger, education and the environment.
