Building Capacity in Community

We work with Frontline Community Charities

Marketing and fundraising is time-consuming and expensive and as a small to medium charity you’re busy on the frontlines helping people. The Catalytic Foundation can be your marketing and fundraising manager. All you need to do is undertake our assessment process and then you can access our nationwide network of businesses, philanthropic trust donors and volunteers, freeing you up to focus on what you do best, supporting New Zealanders in their time of need.

We work with over 100 small to medium frontline charities across New Zealand each year to provide:

- Direct funding
- Networking opportunities
- Volunteering and special project assistance
- Capacity building services through our [email protected] programme
- Advocacy

We invite your charity to apply in our annual grant round in October.  If you are successful as one of the 100 charities who receive financial assistance from the Catalytic Community Chest, you will also be able to access our capacity building and fundraising services to help your charities work throughout the year.
