We are working towards our vision of an Aotearoa New Zealand where all New Zealanders can get ahead.
Booster Foundation is a charitable trust, created and funded by Booster - who has been looking after New Zealanders’ money since 1998 and passionately believe in growing the financial resilience of all Kiwis.
We support New Zealanders & their communities to improve their financial resilience and reduce financial inequality.
Limited financial resilience has a profound effect on the wellbeing and opportunities for tamariki/children, whānau/families in our hapori/communities.
Booster Foundation aims to build strong, sustainable partnerships based on a shared vision and underpinned by our values.
We’re guided by the needs of the communities and organisations we serve, and make decisions, accordingly.
We communicate honestly with partners and stakeholders about our decisions, directions, progress and any potential challenges.
We share our knowledge and learnings with the wider industry, so they can join us on the journey of helping Kiwis improve their financial resilience.
We recognise that our partners are experts in their fields, providing us with informed insights and knowledge to reach the collective goal.
We recognise and value diversity in Kiwi communities, and are strongly committed to nurturing social cohesion, diversity, and inclusion.
The issues at hand are complex – however, we will make greater strides to make a bigger impact when we collaborate with others along the way.
We partner by
- Building strong trust-based relationships with a core cohort of partners
- Making multi-year commitments in principle
- Providing flexible funding
- Helping to build the capacity and sustainability of our partners and their programmes
- Focusing on understanding impact, while limiting administrative and reporting burden on partners
- Learning from one another and sharing what we learn with the wider community
- Innovating/co-creating together when it makes sense
