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.


Liam Willis

Partnership Director

As an adopted Aucklander I’ve been taken by the depth of community spirit and generosity that underpins our community. Being part of Auckland Foundation gives me the chance to harness that spirit to make a lasting impact for generations of Aucklanders, and give back to the city that welcomed my family with open arms.


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.


Joy Marslin
