Welcome to Keystone New Zealand Property Education Trust

Keystone Trust is a Registered Charity that was built on the legacy of Graeme Bringans, a kiwi property developer who was a strong advocate of promoting opportunities for young people to enter the property industry.  Our fundamental goal is to support and enable students who have financial need or have been affected by adverse circumstances to take up tertiary studies in the property sector.

We have been helping students for 25 years and are proud to be working towards our vision of growing the students we help year on year.
