Vital Signs Reports Across the Region
27 March 2018
Vital Signs Reports Across the Region
Communities are stronger when they work together.  The Geyser Foundation mission is to connect generous people with causes that matter in
our local communities.
 
We are very excited to be working alongside our colleagues at the Acorn Foundation and the Eastern Bay Community Foundation to lead the first Bay-wide Vital Signs® project thanks to the generous support of BayTrust, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, Taupō District Council and other supporters.
Vital Signs® is a research tool that looks at the Bay of Plenty Region through the eyes of the people who call it home.
 
It is a community checkup that reports on the social, environmental, cultural and economic wellbeing of our communities, identifying strengths, and areas for improvement. The results will provide all of us with an independent understanding of our local communities’ challenges and priorities, and will be refreshed every three years. It will help us assess our impact to date and to plan for the future.
 
We believe the future of the communities within the Bay of Plenty region is bright.  Many local people have chosen to make community a priority in their lives, sharing ideas, attitudes, philanthropy and time. Their passion is what sets a course for the future and brings us together.
 
We believe that by working together, the best is yet to come.
