The Funding Network New Zealand (TFN NZ) is urging New Zealanders to show their support for small Kiwi charities, through their final Generosity Generator nationwide crowdfunding event, now live on Givealittle.
From 6th November to 17th November, 37 small Kiwi charities from across Aotearoa New Zealand are crowdfunding on Givealittle to gather crucial funds for their respective causes.
“This marks the ultimate Generosity Generator event for us as TFN NZ, as we will be closing at the end of 2023. We aim to make this event the most significant one to date, by raising a record-breaking amount of funds for these charities to ensure their ongoing positive impact,” says Tim Pare, Charities & Partnerships Co-lead of TFN NZ.
Many small Kiwi charities operate with limited resources, yet consistently tackle substantial social or environmental issues within their local communities or regions at a grassroots level.
In many instances, they serve as a vital support system for both people and the environment.
The Generosity Generator was created to support grassroots charities to build a solid foundation for a more secure future, while also inspiring more New Zealanders to back their efforts. It’s a really easy way for people anywhere in New Zealand to learn more about lesser known small charities, support their work with a donation, and become regular followers or supporters of their charity.
“Every donation you make through the Generosity Generator, goes directly to causes that are creating enduring positive change within communities across New Zealand”, says Anusha Bhana, Digital & Comms Co-lead for TFN NZ, “This is a chance to stand by small grassroots charities and give back with a gift for good!”
