What is Match | Te Puna Taurite?

What is Match | Te Puna Taurite?

Match | Te Puna Taurite (MTPT) helps both those seeking and distributing philanthropic and grant funding. The vision of Match | Te Puna Taurite is a more equitable, accessible and collaborative funding system. It aims to connect those with funds to those that seek them.

How does Match | Te Puna Taurite work?

How does Match | Te Puna Taurite work?

Registered charities can post funding requests to get in front of multiple funders with one action.  

Funders can search for charities working in particular areas they want to support. They can connect with like-minded funders.

Our vision


Funding flows to Māori, Pasifika, Rainbow, disability and ethnic communities to progress equity


Small charities with little or no fundraising resource can get in front of philanthropists and grantmakers


Like-minded funders can connect with each other to support their giving and make things easier for charities
