A Christchurch charitable trust which helped raise money for the Mosque Attacks is coming under the spotlight for heavy spending.

An independent review ordered by the City Council of the Christchurch Foundation has found similar foundations in Wellington and Auckland spend much less.

Councillor Yani Johanson told Chris Lynch the report by Deloittes raises a few concerns.

He says the council gave the foundation $3.4 million to operate and only got $2.5 million of value.

Johanson says tomorrow's council meeting is an opportunity to seek answers from the report's questions.
