Community Sector COVID-19 Impact Survey


Tēnā koutou,

It’s time to shine a light on the community sector’s collective contribution to community wellbeing, to take stock of what is needed, and to shape our future.

This email invites you to fill out a nationwide survey on how COVID-19 has impacted the community and voluntary sector. Responses close at 5pm on Friday 12 June.

This survey is for any type of community organisation, big or small. We encourage funders to forward this survey on to community groups they have relationships with, and for not for profits to share amongst their networks. We will be posting on our facebook and LinkedIn channels and would welcome you sharing these.

It’s being sent to you on behalf of the Hui E! Community Aotearoa, Volunteering New Zealand, the Centre for Social Impact,  and Philanthropy New Zealand.  We’ve initiated this survey as a result of enquiries from a number of sources for information about the impact of COVID-19 on the sector.

Your responses will help us pre-empt, record and respond to the impacts COVID-19 has had. We’ll analyse the results alongside other research we know is taking place across the country.

We’ll make the results available to you. This will help inform discussions and decisions around recovery, support and shaping the future of our sector. The combined story will be shared with funders, Government, supporters and the community sector.

Thank you for your contribution to this collective effort. You’re team leaders in the team of five million. It’s through a flourishing and thriving community and voluntary sector that our communities flourish and thrive. Please support this survey through participating or sharing, to help tell our story and shape our future.

Ngā manaakitanga,

Sue McCabe
Philanthropy New Zealand Chief Executive.
