Impact of Covid-19 on philanthropic funding and grantmakng



In May 2020, Philanthropy New Zealand (“PNZ”) surveyed 120 of its philanthropic and grantmaker member organisations (“funders”) to gain a snapshot in time of the impacts of COVID-19 on their funding and approaches.

PNZ undertook the survey because many of the investments and revenue streams of funders, that provide the money they distribute, have been affected. Philanthropic funders and grantmakers are also seeing changed demand for funding given greater community need.

Eighty-two PNZ funders responded. Their giving in the past 12 months represented around $432 million.
