CORE takes its not-for-profit status very seriously. We believe in giving back to our community. In 2009 we established the CORE Foundation, to offer support both financially and our time and expertise—a valuable and sought-after resource—for our outstanding educators to further their depth of understanding in their chosen field.
The CORE Foundation is dedicated to rewarding and celebrating the education sector in all its myriad forms by offering several awards and scholarships. These opportunities are available to all educators in New Zealand.
CORE is also a proud supporter of the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) for secondary students. CORE coordinates the Canterbury region's programme on behalf of the Young Enterprise Trust.
We also make donations and support charities outside the education sector, some of the organisations that we have supported over the years are listed here.
