Give (and get back!)

Join Kotahi (united, one), our giving collective that boosts opportunities for artists and amplifies their impact on New Zealand.

Since 1998, our mahi has been made possible thanks to a community of generous givers across the country – a growing collective of individuals, whānau and businesses of every age, stage and background.

Our mission? To collectively fuel a thriving arts community, to make Aotearoa New Zealand a better place. We're 100% run through generous giving, and with your support, we:

  1. Back our nation's most outstanding artists – Icon, Laureate and Springboard recipients
  2. Build capability for all artists through NZ's only crowdfunding platform dedicated to the arts, Boosted
  3. Champion creativity by getting arts in the media and on our screens
  4. Bring New Zealander's closer to the arts with incredible moments all year, all over the country

Whether you're a long time arts lover, arts-curious or never stepped into a gallery or theatre before: there's something for you here. We connect people across the country to create one movement, for everyone: to back the arts.

As thanks for your support, we'll give you back an opportunity to learn, to meet, to share, to support and to transform artists lives. You may transform your life too!
