The Glenn Family Foundation
The Glenn Family Foundation was founded more than thirty years ago by businessman and philanthropist Sir Owen G. Glenn.
Since then, the Foundation has given an estimated NZ$41 million to a variety of worthwhile causes all over the world including: India, Macau, China, the Philippines and Nepal in Asia; Africa, the UK, the USA and, within the Pacific, New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa and Australia.
At present, the Foundation is concentrating on two priority areas. The first involves a large wide-reaching project in Otara, New Zealand, focusing on education, family wellbeing and sport; the second involves community development and child protection in the Kalimpong region of West Bengal State in India (the Model Villages Programme).

CASA: Court Appointed Special Advocates
In 1977, a Seattle juvenile court judge concerned about making drastic decisions with insufficient information conceived the idea of citizen volunteers speaking up for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom. From that first program has grown a network of more than 933 CASA and guardian ad litem programs that are recruiting, training and supporting volunteers in 49 states and the District of Columbia.
