WHAT THE NZ FOOTBALL FOUNDATION DOES
The Foundation was created initially with responsibility for managing the $4 million given to New Zealand Football for qualifying for the 2010 World Cup. These FIFA qualification funds are the foundation to which New Zealand football supporters and charitable donors can add their own contributions.

The New Zealand Football Foundation’s immediate goal is to grow our capital base.
The faster we can grow our base, the more grants we can distribute.
To date, the NZ Football Foundation has distributed over $1.3m in grants to New Zealand footballers. These grants have gone into the communities and people that need them most.
Our track record to date has shown that for every dollar given to us, we give back 56 cents to grow the game whilst the rest (44 cents) is invested back into the capital base to grow the fund.
In the 4 years since the Foundation’s inception, we have grown the capital base by 8% ($300,000) and given out $1.3million in grants.
