Founding Societies

Te Manawa’s three founding organisations continue to support its development and vision to this day. Our enduring relationship ensures that the community of Palmerston North City is well-served by a meaningful engagement with art, science and social history, and that it is empowered to take its stories to the world.

Earle Trust

Established by Richard and Mary Earle, the Creativity and Development Trust, a Registered Charity under Public Trust and administered locally, helps fund specific local projects within the arts and technical sciences.

The aim of the Trust is to provide resources that will nurture creative ideas and talent in our community and bring specific projects to fruition.
