The Foundation has been essentially established to support the New Zealand National Maritime Museum, but it is an independent Trust wherein the museum’s Trust Board does not have a majority vote. There are three trustees nominated by the museum trust board and three independent trustees. The present trust chair is Ian McCombe, a senior partner at Brookfields Lawyers and one of the independent trustees..
