By donating to the Catalytic Foundation, you will support New Zealanders in their time of need. 

We invite you to nominate a region and/or cause you would like to donate to via the Catalytic Community Funds. We conduct research, assessments and endorse community charities, to ensure donations go to where they are most needed. 

We help donors by:

  • Assessing and allocating funds in the community.
  • Ensuring that your donation goes towards the causes and projects you care about.
  • Keeping you updated about the impact that your donation is having.

We award grants to more than 100 charities per year nationwide.

  • Each charity who receives a financial grant is awarded a Catalytic Foundation Endorsement.
  • Endorsement includes year-round support through Catalytic quarterly campaigns and mentoring.

Donation processes:

  • Tax eligible in NZ: you can receive a 33% NZ charitable giving tax credit on donations over $5.00. All donors receive a tax receipt and E-newsletters about their social impact.

  • To avoid credit card fees you can donate directly to the Catalytic Foundation bank account: 12-3067-0187344-00. Please reference the cause and region you would like to support.

  • Catalytic Foundation donations are securely processed by Stripe, a secure e-commerce platform.
