Our Funding works to further our mission of promoting the Internet's benefits and uses and protecting its potential. We do this by providing grants and supporting engagement events and initiatives.
We support New Zealanders to shape the Internet's growth, development and use - including people from business, government, academia, technical and community-based organisations and the general public. This year we have a priority focus on supporting digital inclusion activity.
We distribute funding of $500,000 per year to community organisations and individuals through grants, strategic partnerships and sponsorship. We run community events like NetHui, speaker events and presentations. We also sponsor events and awards, and provide other in-kind support to community organisations.
Our plan is to help New Zealanders be well developed, connected, collaborating and contributing as much as they can to the development of the Internet for our country.
