Tania Dalton Foundation, has been established to make a meaningful impact on the lives of budding young New Zealanders, guiding them to lead their biggest life - as Tania did. 


The Foundation supports young New Zealanders, from all circumstances and stages of development, to unlock their talent and be their best selves. The goal is to engage with thousands of young New Zealanders through a range of programmes aimed at making a positive and measurable impact.  The first initiative of the Foundation is the Scholarship Programme, providing support to young women from all kinds of circumstances and at different stages of their development, to unlock their talent and enable them to live their biggest life with sport as their guide. These young women participate in sports that Tania and her family had a strong bond with, inc: Netball, tennis, touch, Surf Lifesaving, basketball and rugby. One of the main goals of the programme is for these young women to then contribute back to their communities and continue the legacy for future generations. Tania was a firm believer in the values of sport and how it teaches us the power of resilience, to win and lose graciously, to put team before self.
