Taonga Tū Heritage Bay of Plenty is the kaitiaki of this endowment fund inspired by Brian Davies.

The fund's purpose

To build a fund whose annual interest will ultimately be used to go towards the daily operational costs of Tauranga and Western Bay of Plenty museum styled experiences.  The fund is to continue to be grown with its annual income being dispersed equally across deserving museum-styled heritage experiences throughout our subregion.

About Brian Davies

Brian’s love of history led him to The Elms Te Papa where he was a long time guide and to Tauranga’s Historical Society as a committee member.  Brian was a strong supporter of Tauranga & Western Bay of Plenty having a regional museum and was disappointed this was taking so long. Brian believed the people of Tauranga and Western Bay were being let down. His last wishes were for a fund to be set up towards the museum - a place where people could gather to tell their stories and share their experiences with locals and visitors alike.
