The CELF Trust was founded with one mission:

To build future leaders from all walks of life, who can reimagine a stronger Waikato from a social, environmental, cultural and economic perspective. These leaders take charge of their lives while influencing others positively, resulting in a significant contribution to Waikato communities and society, and New Zealand as a whole.

Our chairpersons and trustees consist of a wide range of professionals, from founding members such as David Irving & Bernie Crosby (patron) to programme alumni such as Graeme Geurts & Susan Trodden.
