The Catalytic Foundation helps individuals, organisations and philanthropic funds across New Zealand maximise their social impact, through the giving of time, money and resources to regional charities.  Our extensive knowledge and relationships in the community sector across New Zealand means that we can wisely invest back into community charities where support is needed most, accelerating social impact.

  • We work with donors to provide funds to the community sector throughout New Zealand. The donations are given back to the region the donor originates from or designates as their preferred giving.
  • We also provide volunteering, skills, resources and capacity building services for community charities. 

To do something for many is one of the main concepts of catalytic philanthropy. By working under this model, the Catalytic Foundation can get the most value out of every dollar or skill donated and with our extensive 46-year history of community partnerships, drive social change.
