Leading with purpose.
Supporting women-led projects.
Making a real impact.

We are a community of generous women who work together to create opportunities for women and girls in the Waikato. We support projects that help and empower women to reach their full potential and achieve the best outcomes.

We make it easy to donate to projects that target and directly influence the lives of women in our community. As a member of the fund, you get to help us decide which projects to fund and how best to make a difference.

Be part of something special and through your generosity create a ripple effect of change in our region, our country and the world.

Join us in making a difference in the lives of women and girls.

Give a monthly gift

Giving a regular gift allows us to plan ahead and be more effective. It also helps us address needs as they arise.

Corporate giving

Your organisation can support the work of the Waikato Women’s Fund with a modest annual donation, giving you access to events and communication. Talk to us about making this happen. Contact Waikato Women’s Fund for more information empower@waikatowomensfund.nz

Payroll giving

Payroll giving is a great way to give regularly and you immediately receive a tax credit applied to your PAYE payable. There's no need to keep records for the end of the tax year. Speak to your employer about donating via payroll giving to Momentum Foundation and drop us an email to let us know you want your donation to go to the Waikato Women's Fund.

Help us spread the word

It will take all of us to make a real difference. Use your networks to help the Waikato Women's Fund grow its membership and impact. Talk to your friends and family about the Waikato Women's Fund or host an event and invite us to speak about why women's giving is so important.

One-off gifts

Every single donation is a much-welcomed act of generosity that will go a long way towards helping women and girls.

Other ways to give

While we welcome one-off and regular gifts, you can also choose to make a bequest in your will. For more information, contact us at empower@waikatowomensfund.nz

"I am passionate about empowering women, particularly young women, and I wanted to find an ongoing way to support a cause that matters to me, but it had been difficult to know where to start. The Waikato Women’s Fund makes that easy"
