For an organisation to be considered by Step Changers, they need to be:
- Be a Registered Charity in New Zealand, or elsewhere in the Asia/Pacific region.
- Be established with proof of existing community projects and past success.
- Have a core focus on providing education for children, environmental conservation, supporting equality for all, or on delivering critical healthcare services to communities in need. Projects spanning more than one of these areas will be considered.
- Work 'on the ground' - you deliver tangible results to communities in need. Unfortunately, businesses will be less likely to support causes they can't see and quantify, so our preference is to support organisations who work directly with communities.
- Be secular. Organisations with strong connections to religious organisations are not eligible for this programme.
- Demonstrate a particular need or purpose for funds. Projects that can outline a specific need (e.g. new enclosures for animals) will take preference over organisations with vague needs (e.g. to support communities to grow). As much as possible, we want to know what you will actually achieve.
- Have a realistic funding target. We imagine projects with specific funding goals between $5000 and $50,000 NZD are most likely to see success.
- Be willing to work with Step Changers to improve our processes over time.
