We are live!
We’re pleased to announce that we are now inviting selected charities and funders into the service to kickstart the Match | Te Puna Taurite community.
We are gradually growing the Match | Te Puna Taurite community before we open up to all registered charities and funders. We are taking this approach as a final test of the functionality and a way we can take feedback on board to ensure the service is all set.
We expect to open up to all registered charities and funders in the last week of July. Make sure you’re on our newsletter database and following us on Facebook and LinkedIn so you hear when you can join.
Given our vision is a more equitable and funding system, the community groups we’re inviting to kickstart the service are largely those led by and who support the Māori, Pacific, Rainbow, ethnic and disabled communities. As another objective is a more accessible funding system, they’re also generally groups with fewer fundraising resources.
We’re inviting a small number of funders who have been engaged during Match | Te Puna Taurite’s development or who are our funder members to join the community in this initial stage as well.
Match | Te Puna Taurite is an online service for philanthropists and grant makers to connect with community and charitable groups working in areas they want to support. We encourage you to find out more by exploring this site.
Ngā mihi nui,
The Match | Te Puna Taurite team.
