Updates to your FINZ Membership for 2022

After in depth industry research and listening to our members, 2022 brings with it a new membership structure. We believe it is fair, robust and considers the contemporary climate of fundraising across Aotearoa New Zealand. The most significant change has been to categorise Organisational Members by latest reported annual fundraising income, as opposed to annual revenue. This has meant an increase in Bands to ensure fair spread as referenced by Charities Services. Additionally, Corporate Membership Bands have been standardised.

All organisational membership bands are calculated on annual fundraising income

*FINZ has created this membership band to support Charities as they navigate from a cheque-based operation to digital platforms and processes. Our successful funding application from Lotteries allowed FINZ to administer and accept requests for a free membership, predominantly to access the cheque use portal. These requests are at the discretion of the FINZ team.
