The Fundraising Institute of New Zealand (FINZ) is the professional body that represents fundraising in New Zealand. 

Our vision is our aspiration for the future:

Everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand is empowered and inspired to give
generously and confidently to causes they care about.

Our mission is how we work towards our vision:

To inspire, create and strengthen confidence in giving and generosity across
Aotearoa New Zealand that leads to positive impact.


  • We are boldly generous: Generosity is at the heart of everything we do. We believe in the power of giving to make change. We’re focused on enabling all fundraisers across Aotearoa New Zealand to be the best stewards of giving they can be. We have a courageous spirit that is steadfast in following our purpose, getting things done not being afraid when the going gets tough.
  • We are committed collaborators: Only by working together inclusively can we be truly effective change agents. We value diversity and encourage, build and maintain connections and engagement within, across and outside our sector. We are open to all and share ideas, wins and failures so we can collectively learn and grow.
  • We hold the highest standards for everyone: Our ethical principles – honesty, respect, integrity, empathy, and transparency – are paramount. We keep ourselves and our members accountable to these principles and the standards that reflect them to build and maintain trust and credibility in our work. We apply these principles and standards inclusively and equitably across the board to lift our profession.
  • Developing standards of practice: This is us. We’re real. We’re human. We lead with a passion to inspire and celebrate people who give, people to drive giving and the causes that translate giving into change. We’re thought leaders – encouraging learning and facilitating growth to push our own and others thinking forward.
