How we fund

The Todd Foundation has a new five year funding strategy, to help us support long-term social change more effectively.

Please note that we no longer run grant rounds. We don’t have an application form, and we are unfortunately unable to respond to unsolicited requests or ‘pitches’ for funding.

We have very specific focus areas, which allows us to find funding recipients through our own pro-active research and community engagement.

You can read more about how and why we developed our strategy here.

You can also find out more about our change funding focus areas on our Youth Employment and Fairer Futures for Children and Whānau pages.

Working Together More Fund

The Working Together More Fund accepts applications from groups working together collaboratively. Please read their website for more details, and contact their co-ordinator if you have questions.  The Todd Foundation is proud to be a supporter of this fund, along with the Tindall Foundation, JR McKenzie Trust, the Hugh Green Foundation, DV Bryant Trust and the Lindsay Foundation.

Other Funders

There are many funders who do run application processes. We suggest you use the givUS  database to find funders which are the best fit for your organisation. This can be accessed free of charge through many public libraries.
