for the common good

hei painga mo te katoa

The foundation is an independent trust established in the name of former Prime Minister, Helen Clark, who is our patron. We have a focus on research and education, particularly in those areas that have been a matter of interest to our patron in her career of public service, both in New Zealand and overseas.

Our Impact

The Helen Clark Foundation is a trust with a research and education focus. We aim to produce informed and evidence-based briefings and reports on some of the key public policy debates of the day, particularly those that relate to Helen Clark's current activities internationally.
