How does Match | Te Puna Taurite work?

How does Match | Te Puna Taurite work?

Registered charities and other types of fundseekers who meet our criteria 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


Fundseekers (in particular those with little to no fundraising resources) 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 fundseekers
