Centre for Social Impact

The Centre for Social Impact was established by the Foundation to help organise and deliver social programmes for optimum social impact.

To ensure the best possible outcome from its major Catalysts for Change investments, the Foundation established the Centre for Social Impact. 

  • The Centre for Social Impact was founded as a result of the Foundation’s experience from 2008 in investing in and supporting  high engagement programmes, such as our Maori and Pacific Education Initiative. These programmes pioneered a New Zealand approach to ‘venture philanthropy’.  Venture philanthropy is a process of engaging interested communities and organisations in proposing solutions to complex social issues.  Multi-year funding and organisational support is then provided to trial the effectiveness of innovative proposals.
  • The expertise developed by the Foundation in choosing and supporting high-engagement projects is now available to the Foundation and other philanthropic, government, corporate and not-for-profit  organisations through the Centre. The Centre also provides support to the Foundation’s current high engagement Catalysts for Change partners.
