InternetNZ | Ipurangi Aotearoa funding and sponsorship comes from .nz domain name sales. We want to support the growth of the Internet community in Aotearoa. How do we do this? We distribute funds through partner organisations, run contestable grant rounds, collaborate with other funders, and sponsor community initiatives.

Since 2019 we have contributed over $2,200,000 towards digital inclusion initiatives, and our main grant round continued this focus by investing in growing the evaluation capability of organisations that are working in digital inclusion. To achieve digital equity, we need to ensure those supporting digitally excluded people and communities have the ability to effectively measure impact.



This year we distributed $65,000 in sponsorship funding to support communities and help showcase the work we do to keep .nz humming.
