Improving health and wellbeing equity for rangatahi

The MAS Foundation is a philanthropic organisation, which honours the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and is committed to improving health and wellbeing equity in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Our Whakapapa

In 2019 MAS (Medical Assurance Society), an insurance and investment provider, established the MAS Foundation to make an even more meaningful difference to a healthier Aotearoa New Zealand. This was wholeheartedly endorsed by MAS Members who voted in favour of establishing the Foundation.
