How we fund

Funding for Communities

We will be changing our funding processes in 2018 to enable us to support long-term social impact more effectively. We want to support real change in communities, reduce compliance costs for organisations, and promote collaboration rather than competition. From now on, we will be working closely with communities to identify, fund and support co-ordinated community responses to achieve systemic change in selected focus areas.

We no longer run grant rounds, and we cannot respond to unsolicited applications, pitches or requests for funding from organisations.

To find funders who do accept applications, you can use the givUS  database. This can be accessed free of charge through many public libraries.

Funding for Individuals

Individuals can apply for a postgraduate scholarship in energy research or university awards in particular disciplines.

Universities NZ administer this funding on our behalf – please contact them directly if you have any questions

Funding for Working Collaboratively

If your organisation wants to work more closely with others then you can apply to the Working Together More Fund – He Pūtea Mahi Tahi.  This fund is not administered by the Todd Foundation. Please read the Working Together More Fund website for more details, and contact their co-ordinator if you have questions.

Invitation only funding

No new funding will be provided through Partnership Funding or the Special Focus Fund, but we will continue to meet our existing funding commitments.
