Fundraising New Zealand magazine has been New Zealand's premier independent monthly subscriber publication for the not-for-profit sector, and associated support organisations and individuals, since 2002.




  • Fundraising New Zealand Magazine informs and educates:
  • Learn what organisations are performing well - and those who are not.
  • Learn about fundraising stuff, sponsorship stuff and third sector stuff from New Zealanders top practitioners.
  • If you are a fundraiser or a manager or a Board member or a corporate or a trust you need Fundraising New Zealand magazine.


In today’s busy world of fundraising it is important to stay up to date, relevant and in reach of your stakeholders. The Fundraising New Zealand Magazine achieves this through its independence, practicality and courage to tell it as it is. The magazine has a wide audience of not only fundraisers but also suppliers to charities, philanthropic organisations, trusts, community trusts, gaming trusts, policy makers, politicians and those involved in governance which makes the magazine a ‘must read’ for everyone involved in the not for profit sector.

Like most industries, the social-profit (charity) world of fundraising in New Zealand is not the same as Australia, the U.S., U.K. or Canada – markets we look to as similar to ours. New Zealand is unique, and for any business with something to sell, we must be market-driven and donor-focused to succeed. A strong, objective viewpoint, expert opinion, stimulating discussion on industry trends, regulations and practices, are crucial to staying informed and close to the world we live in. Tony and the many contributors to Fundraising New Zealand are an important asset for the social-profit world in New Zealand providing us these views, opinions and an industry perspective crucial to staying up with the play. I whole-heartedly recommend Fundraising New Zealand as a valuable publication for our industry and suppliers to our industry.
