Wendy Courtois Team Lead – Funding Process/Advisor

What motivated you to join Rātā Foundation?

I was intrigued by the concept of the Foundation and delighted with the opportunity to become a part of this process.

What are you personally most passionate about in supporting the community?

Particular areas of interest for me include promoting sport and recreational activities. These have the wider health and social benefits of getting people active or playing a sport at all levels, developing friendships, and gaining valuable life skills almost by default. These also tie in with my passion for environmental projects and the benefits of taking care of and preserving our environment for present and future users of this planet.

What do you find the most rewarding aspect of your work at Rātā Foundation?

I work as a Grants Assessor at Rātā Foundation. The most rewarding aspect for me is the knowledge that each application and corresponding successful grant has the potential to provide valuable support in our local communities.

What gets you up and off to work each morning?

A new day, and you never know what is around the corner.
