About the Catalytic Foundation

Previously United Way NZ, the Catalytic Foundation has over 40 years of experience in connecting individuals, businesses and philanthropists with communities in need around Aotearoa.  Every year, the Catalytic Foundation ambassadors carry out on-site visits to community charities to determine how Catalytic Foundation funding grants get allocated.  The charities who are successful also obtain Catalytic accreditation as recognised charity partners that provide outstanding services within the community.  Whether your main resource is volunteer-time or hard-earned dollars, catalytic philanthropy can collectively make a big social impact and create transformational change.
