Who are we?

The Catalytic Foundation focus is on promoting wellbeing and looking after people in need in New Zealand communities. We aim to get the maximum value out of every dollar, resource or skill donated to ensure the greatest social impact for the community partners we work with.

The Catalytic Foundation team has considerable experience working with New Zealand charities and communities. We are here for the people in the communities we serve. Using our team’s wide skillset we ensure all money, time and resources collected, go to where they are needed most.
