Responding to the establishment of Helen Clark Foundation, New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union Executive Director Jordan Williams says:

"We welcome the establishment of a new policy think tank. New Zealand needs more independent voices on policy to hold the politicians to account. However, it would be a shame to see the Helen Clark Foundation to follow the Clinton Foundation in taking funds from the New Zealand taxpayer."

"New Zealanders have every right to support policy think tanks on a voluntary basis - that’s how the Taxpayers’ Union operates. No-one should be forced to support Helen Clark’s political activism via taxes."
