The Fundraising Institute of New Zealand

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

For the benefit of all New Zealanders, FINZ is committed to fundraising excellence. We want to ensure that worthy causes are well supported and that the generosity of New Zealanders is recognised and encouraged.

We do this by:

  • Ensuring ethical fundraising - developing standards of practice to enhance the integrity and professionalism of fundraisers and the fundraising sector
  • Professional Development - providing the best educational events to lead and educate fundraisers
  • Creating networking opportunities
  • Mentoring
  • Discounted Services
  • Being your Voice - advocating the value of fundraising to society and government in order to empower fundraisers in their work in and with communities

For more information on any of the above please learn more and consider Joining Us


FINZ is governed by a Board comprised of FINZ members. The Board is elected and new officers appointed before the AGM. FINZ Head Office in Wellington is run by a full-time Executive Director who manages a small team of  part-time staff. FINZ membership is split into four regions; Northern; Central; Southern and Southland. Regular education events are held in the three main centres monthly and occasionally in Southland.
