Charities, Not for Profit & Social Enterprise

Not-for-profit and charitable organisations are an integral part of New Zealand society.

Tompkins Wake advises not-for-profit, charitable and philanthropic organisations, companies and incorporated societies. We regularly assist not-for-profit organisations to establish effective legal structures to enable the achievement of their objectives including, formation, registration and incorporation, establishing governance and reporting structures and ensuring regulatory compliance.

We have significant experience advising social enterprises and were instrumental in helping form the Momentum Community Foundation. Our work with Momentum continues as we support the Foundation with advice to help achieve greater social impact.

Tompkins Wake is also a member of The Good Collective
