The Maurice Paykel Charitable Trust (MPCT) was established in 1976 by the late Maurice Paykel, a well-known philanthropist and the co-founder of the Fisher and Paykel group of companies.
The Trust Deed empowers the MPCT trustees to use its funds "for or towards such charitable purposes in New Zealand as the Trustees shall from time to time specify." To qualify for consideration, charities need to be officially registered, either under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 or the Charities Act 2005.
