TFN supports non-profit organisations that aim to achieve positive social change, meaning that they have the potential to create enduring positive transformation for individuals, communities, society and/or the environment over the long term. More specifically, TFN funds organisations that aim to do one or more of the following:

  • Address issues of inequality and disadvantage
  • Provide advocacy with the potential to improve society
  • Change attitudes, behaviour, laws and public policy
  • Find a better solution to an underlying problem
  • Pilot solutions with the potential for expansion

There are no restrictions on the geographies or beneficiary groups that TFN will fund, however, the organisation must be based in New Zealand.

TFN supports organisations that would be defined as small to medium-sized, where the amount of funding we raise at a TFN event would make a genuinely useful contribution. Specifically, in New Zealand this means organisations with an average turnover of $500,000 pa or less.

If you are interested in applying you can download the form via the link above, or for further information please email info@thefundingnetwork.org.nz.
