The CINZ Community Fund

Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) believes strongly that the New Zealand conventions sector has a responsibility to give back to its community.

The CINZ Community Fund derives its income from special fundraising events, promotions and conference participant, exhibitor and sponsor levies.

These funds are distributed to worthy causes in communities across the length and breadth of New Zealand for a wide range of charitable purposes.

All New Zealand conference and hospitality organisations are encouraged to contribute the proceeds of their fundraising activities into the CINZ Community Fund to enable it to make a major and informed impact on our country’s people and their communities.

Who Administers the Fund?
The CINZ Community Fund is administered by the Auckland Communities Foundation, an independent incorporated trust registered with the Charities Commission. In addition to managing the investment of the Fund, the Foundation provides grant making guidance to CINZ. To achieve this Auckland Communities Foundation draws upon the knowledge held in the national community foundation movement and other informed sources. The Foundation’s national charitable status means that it can make grants anywhere in New Zealand to organisations and individuals conducting projects and programmes with a charitable purpose. Auckland Communities Foundation also assists with providing speakers on relevant social topics from its network for conference events.

What do we support?
The CINZ Community Fund takes a proactive approach to supporting important charitable activities in local communities where specific New Zealand conventions and meetings are taking place. In this way, CINZ can support these communities socially as well as through economic opportunities.
