Reply To: Kia ora,I’m in the process of gifting my business to the people of NZ, however I want the profits of the business to go to the Iwi of NZ through a Trust/Beneficiary situation. The aim is for Maori to take control of their own communications, through the networks of Niche Media and the 80 media companies which operate out of the “Bureau of Ethnic Communication”. This provides a fully managed resource and income for Iwi to improve communications and opportunities for jobs in the Communications sector.Is there someone in Manaaki who can advise how best to set this up? 


Kia ora

What a wonderful question to read. I feel a really good contact for you to make is with Ezra Hirawini from Nau Mai Rā – Aotearoa’s first Māori Power Company. https://www.facebook.com/naumairanz/

Ezra and his team have a dream to create a Māori business in every industry that gives back to iwi and Nau Mai Rā is their first project. They are also on the hunt for a charitable trust to be the home of their business but they may be able to share their process so far with you.

If this is of interest, drop me a line at b@bravebear.co.nz and I can connect you.
