Based in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland, Brown Bread is growing a culture of giving by connecting communities, building meaningful movements, and empowering good businesses to be even better.

Giving back is better business and better for our world. So, we work with businesses with social missions, organisations seeking true impact, and generous individuals, creating connections and growing momentum.

Our team delivers results through the power of philanthropy, communications, and events. Old ways don’t open new doors – so don’t expect traditional.

B Corp

Brown Bread is a certified B Corp - a company using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
