Our supporters are an integral part of our community. They contribute to our work addressing critical long-term global and national issues challenging our future.
Koi Tū is an independent centre within the University of Auckland but is financially self-sufficient. While we often compete successfully for grants and commercial research funding, we also look to the wider community to help us to grow and develop. That’s why philanthropic support is vital. We build much-needed funds for our research with every donation you make. Every donation make will be used 100 per cent for the purposes you intend and will not be used for any administration or overhead related costs.
Become a supporter of Koi Tū and you’ll have opportunities to meet our researchers, contribute to some of our think-pieces and attend our webinars and events.
You can sign up to our quarterly e-newsletter here.
