Can't find what you're looking for?
Do you offer your products for free?
We are a social enterprise that operates on a cost recovery model. Some organisations purchase our products for their communities and organisations to use. Ask your school, university or public library if they have a subscription for you to use.
Why doesn't my library have your products?
Local councils make the decision on which resources they will purchase for their ratepayers. If enough people ask about our products then these tools may become a priority investment for your council or library in the future.
Does Generosity New Zealand offer funding?
No. We don't administer or offer funds ourselves. We provide you with access to extensive opportunities offered throughout New Zealand.
I am at secondary school and I want to go on a class trip overseas. Can you help?
This is slightly different from studying overseas. Scholarships and grants are very specific and class trips aren't a high priority for funders. We recommend you fundraise or secure a sponsor.
When is the best time to look for funding?
Opportunities open and close at different times throughout the year. For example, many tertiary scholarships close six months (or more) before the following academic year. It pays to be organised, look well in advance and check regularly.
Can I login from anywhere?
Yes. As long as you have your subscription login details or a library card that permits remote access. Our products are not available if you are from a large organisation because verification is IP based. For example, school subscriptions must use approved school computers.
Are you a Government department?
We are an independent social enterprise with charitable status, registration number CC21488 (Funding Information Service trading as Generosity New Zealand). We are not a Government department and do not receive any funding from Government.
Do I need to be a charity to get a grant?
Not necessarily. Every grant has different criteria, so read each one carefully to determine what is required.
