Fulton Hogan cares for the communities we operate in. Our people regularly donate their time to local causes and initiatives, while at a regional and national level we provide financial support, skills and resources to a wide range of organisations that are strengthening our communities. Through our partnerships we support wellbeing, diversity, the environment, education and innovation.

To save the Takahē
Raised for Cure Brain Cancer
Takahē Recovery Programme
Like most people, we’re passionate about our environment and the survival of our native species.
In 2016, we signed a five-year partnership with the Department of Conservation (DOC) worth NZ$1 million to support its Takahē Recovery Programme.
This initiative is helping to re-establish takahē in South Island high tussock lands. Encouragingly, the population in this area passed 300 birds for the first year.
Inclusion and wellbeing is an important part of life at Fulton Hogan. It’s part of daily life for our teams.
Since 2015, Fulton Hogan has helped the wounded and ill men and women of the New Zealand Defence Force compete in an international multi-sport event, as a sponsor of the Kiwi Invictus team. We’re right behind the team and the amazing energy and effort they put into their achievements.
Endometriosis New Zealand
Creating a supportive environment that encourages people to talk about wellbeing issues is part of our safety vision - ‘Living Safely’.
With 120,000 women and girls around New Zealand suffering from this painful condition, we are working with Endometriosis New Zealand (ENZ) to encourage awareness.
Our support has helped ENZ run a successful in-school education programme that engaged with 5000 students in its first year. Our sponsorship also assists research in universities across studying teenagers with endometriosis.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to achieve. Our sponsorship of START Foundation is helping people achieve their sporting dreams.
START Foundation was established in 2013 through the inspirational story of Kerryn Harvey, who contracted a life-threatening, flesh-eating bacteria as a result of a seemingly minor cycling accident. Radical surgery was required and a right forequarter amputation (arm and shoulder) was performed. With the support of friends and family, Kerryn planned her sporting comeback less than two years later as an amputee, marking the first chapter of the START Foundation.
START Foundation is providing grants for prosthetics to enable amputees to participate in sport, and we’re proud to support them.
Education is key to creating sustainable communities. Through our support of Indi Kindi, a charitable organisation that creates a range of reading and counting materials, we are helping improve literacy skills in very young Aboriginal children and their relatives.
Indi Kindi introduces literacy early using best-practice teaching and support models to help break the intergenerational challenges facing many remote Aboriginal communities.
