Match | Te Puna Taurite (MTPT) to shut down

10 August 2023

Launched in August 2022, Match was an ambitious project to change the funding system to make it more equitable, accessible and collaborative.

However, this service has not gained the support needed to deliver practical benefits to funders and fund seekers, and after discussion with key users Match have determined that it is unlikely to achieve the required level of activity, therefore closing on 31 August.

Philanthropy New Zealand | Tōpūtanga Tuku Aroha o Aotearoa (PNZ) would like to thank those that supported us to develop the concept of

Match | Te Puna Taurite to create a more equitable, accessible and collaborative funding system. These include the philanthropic and grantmaking funders who provided seed funding and input; and the community and voluntary sector representatives who contributed their time and advice.

Match is hosting zoom calls to answer any questions by fund seekers. If you require a refund please email Match with your bank account details by 31st August 2023.

Match is hosting two zoom information sessions ahead of closing.

Zoom 18 August 12:30-1:30pm

Zoom 23 August 12:30-1:30pm
