Each year we work with trusted partner organisations whose vision and kaupapa align with our own. We continue to support our ecosystem by funding a broad range of partners in their mahi across digital equity, community support, research, and broadening networks.

Powering communities


We are working towards better outcomes for Māori and other groups disproportionately impacted by issues on the Internet. This has spurred us on to explore more flexible, proactive ways of distributing pūtea that support tino rangatiratanga and lead to better outcomes and a better Internet for Aotearoa.

We provide contestable funding to support community-led initiatives that align with our strategic goals. This year, we distributed more than 50 grants under $10,000, and the outcomes will help make the Internet better for our people.
