Making A Meaningful Difference Towards A Vibrant Waikato Region

For over 40 years the Perry family has been proudly supporting the communities of New Zealand

In 1976 a charitable trust was established with a personal donation of $100,000 from Hamilton businessman Brian Perry, and his wife Peggy, who wanted to provide support for the community that had, in turn, assisted them with their business growth over the previous 20 years.

Four decades later, the trust continues to develop strong partnerships with like-minded organisations to deliver on its purpose of ‘Making a meaningful difference towards a vibrant Waikato Region’.

We find it so rewarding being able to support fantastic organisations like the Adastra Foundation!Behind the scenes of our scholarship programme is the Perry Group and the Brian Perry Charitable Trust. “Perry’s” is the founder of Adastra and an incredibly valuable sponsor.
They provide ongoing governance and management support, look after our finances and we can use some of their facilities like Podium Lodge - Cambridge NZ as HQ.

A big HIGH FIVE to the Perry Group
