Otago charities support in 2023

Catalytic Community Fund raises $185,553 to donated to 38 frontline community organisations in Otago. 

Congratulations to the community charities from the Otago Region who received a Catalytic Foundation Grant in 2023. Thank you to Otago Polytechnic and the Dunedin City Council for hosting the awards event. It was wonderful to see all the charities together networking and sharing their experiences.

Thank you to The Tindall Foundation, Mercy Hospital, Otago Polytechnic Charity House and our payday donors who contribute to this very important community fund.

All charities who have received Catalytic Grant funding in the last 2 years also receive a Catalytic endorsement and a letter of support, to help them apply for further funding.

“I would like to pass on the thanks of our client, volunteers, board members and myself for the generous donation we received from Catalytic at last night's presentation. It was a great opportunity to make connections with other groups in our community and also catch up with some old friends. It is also good to find out some of the stories behind groups working around Otago.
The funds given make it possible for us to continue operating and being able to offer an affordable service to our clients”. Jennie Archer, Dunedin Community Transport Trust
