Our People.

Our Team.

The Foundation is run by a small team of experienced professionals.

Dellwyn Stuart

Chief Executive Officer

Above all else I admire kindness and generosity in people. So, I’m delighted to be leading a foundation with the purpose of inspiring and enabling those values in others. I love Auckland’s diversity, energy – it has been a great place to raise my family and I hope with the work of the Auckland Foundation it will continue to be so.


Lettie Bright

Philanthropy Services Manager

I’ve lived in Auckland for over 10 years but it was having children that really made me think about the future of the city they are growing up in. I believe we can all play a part in making sure every Aucklander has the same opportunities, and I love meeting so many people that share this belief.


Melody Mobsby

Foundation Manager

Having grown up in Auckland I’m proud to be part of Auckland Foundation and the great work we are doing. It’s exciting to see the difference we are making in local communities, and I look forward to seeing it continue long into the future.


Nicola Edwards

Grants and Communications Associate

A childhood on a remote Scottish island has led to a strong appreciation of the importance of family and community. These values, alongside empathy and respect, continue to be ones I hold dear, and being part of the Auckland Foundation team is a wonderful opportunity to put these values into practice.


Our Trustees

The Trustee board has the specialist knowledge, experience, qualifications and interest to ensure the optimal governance of Auckland Foundation.


Geoff Clews


With extensive legal and governance experience, we are fortunate to have Geoff at the helm of our Board. He is well known for his love and support of the performing arts and is building his own family fund with Auckland Foundation to foster talent in this area.
