Looking for funding?

New Zealand’s most innovative new online platform for fundraising is here.

Funding HQ will provide you with leading expertise and systems to help you secure funding, even when things are changing fast.

Our launch site is available now and additional value add features are coming shortly.

Funding HQ captures the proven fundraising methodology developed by Giblin Group.

If you’re looking to increase your funding and build strong long-term funding partnerships, you’ve come to the right place. 

Giblin Group is a regionally-focused professional services consultancy. Since Giblin Group was founded in 2008, we’ve helped attract more than $120 million in public and private funding to projects in communities across New Zealand. Our core purpose is to help build vibrant communities.

The Funding HQ platform shares Giblin Group’s philosophy and seeks to help organisations who rely on external funding to become more sustainable. 

Funding HQ gives you cost-effective access to Giblin Group’s leading fundraising expertise, whatever the size of your organisation and wherever you are in New Zealand.

Funding HQ can help whatever your organisation’s size or project


Funding HQ gives you the fundraising expertise you need to reach your goals. 

We’re here to help groups large or small – from art organisations, to social service providers, environmental groups, sports groups, schools and any organisation requiring funding support. We know for some groups there is a need to look at new ways and approaches to fundraising and that’s where Funding HQ can also help. We believe anyone looking to raise between $10,000 and $2 million will get the most from Funding HQ. 

Funding HQ gives you flexible help to reach your fundraising goals and can help with a vast range of funding needs – both for one-off projects, to organisations needing ongoing fundraising support.


Funding HQ helps you to:

  • Take a more diversified, proactive and strategic approach to fundraising
  • Discover new funding opportunities that match their needs
  • Build a compelling case for investment
  • Tailor applications to demonstrate alignment to a funder’s priorities and criteria
  • Understand how to approach funders and make ‘the ask’
  • Measure and report on the ‘impact’ of the funding contribution
  • Look after funders and establish long-term funding partnerships

Funding HQ is your complete solution

Funding HQ is a self-directed online platform that gives you all the coaching, templates, tips, tools and resources you need to get a successful funding outcome. It guides you through the following essential steps.


The platform has three key modules.

  • Building a compelling case for funding
  • Creating your funding plan
  • Designing your funder retention plan



  • Build a compelling pitch with the information that funders look for most. This resource will help you to effectively position your project or organisation to meet funder criteria and increase your chances of funding success. 


  • Create your own tailor-made fundraising plan which identifies funding opportunities across a broad range of sources and outlines the ‘who, what and when’ for your funding applications. Being organised is one of the keys to winning funding. Having a clear and strategic plan will help you increase your chances of getting more funding, more often. 


  • Create a plan to look after your funders effectively in order to retain and even grow their contributions over time 
And this is only the start! Funding HQ will continue to release further functionality and content. The fundraising landscape is ever changing, so we will be updating and adding material as funders unlock more opportunities. 


You’re in control

We designed Funding HQ with your busy life in mind.

You can quietly go through the process, the questions and check what information you’ll need to complete the modules in an hour or less. Once you understand which details your potential funder requires, you can delegate tasks to complete the modules and find the relevant information.

You can make a start on any of the modules and come back to them when it suits you.
