Advancing New Zealand is Massey University’s campaign to raise $100 million to enable excellence in scholarship, teaching and research at the University.
There are many good reasons to give money to Massey University, click on the link below to read about them.
The Massey University Foundation manages donations to Massey University through Advancing New Zealand and other campaigns. It currently manages and administers around $12 million of gifts.
The Foundation Board invests donations in a low-risk portfolio. The Foundation is governed by a board of directors who report to the Massey Council and provide audited accounts in an annual report.
The Massey University Foundation is a charity with full charitable status.
Anyone can give to Massey.
Most of our benefactors are alumni or staff. However, even if you’re not an alumnus or staff member, you can give to a world-leading organisation in several academic disciplines, such as veterinary science. Whatever your area of interest, it's highly likely it's being taught, practised or researched somewhere at Massey. Or you can choose to help students in any discipline who don’t have the financial means to come here.
You can give to the scholarship fund which allows students who would otherwise be unable to afford university study the opportunity to maximise their potential at Massey. It also allows us to attract exceptional postgraduate students to study here.
You can also give to any of several specialist sub-trusts we’ve created to support specific areas of learning and research. The Foundation invests and manages donations for these sub-trusts, distributing the profit back to them.
We also have a Heritage Fund that makes sure our oldest and best-known buildings are preserved for future generations.
You can give to Massey at any time and we have several ways to do it.
We have several options for making a donation to Massey. You can pick the option most convenient for you and the specific area of our work you’d like to support. You can also make a general donation without specifying what it should go towards and allow us to direct it to the cause that most needs your support.
Even if you don’t live in New Zealand, you can still give to Massey.
We take the privacy of your information and financial security very seriously. The online donation form has electronic security measures to protect your credit card and other information.
That decision is entirely up to you. Any donation you make will be valued and appreciated, and will make a tangible difference to Massey’s work.
New Zealand resident taxpayers donating to a charity receive a 33.3 per cent rebate on their donation. For example, if you make a gift of $15,000, it will cost you only $10,000 once the $5,000 rebate is taken into consideration.
We have a code of conduct for benefactors that makes sure your donation is used responsibly and invested wisely to give maximum benefit to Massey.
You’re very welcome to talk to us about giving to Massey.
