Boosted – New Zealand Arts Crowdfunding fundraising –

Boosted provides an exciting new way to raise money for the arts by using a form of fund-raising called crowdfunding.


Kei Boosted ka taea e te tangata te kimi moni nō te minenga mō ngā mahi toi.

The Arts Foundation has established Boosted to build a new generation of arts donors. It is the only genuinely philanthropic crowdfunding website for arts projects in New Zealand. Boosted enables donors to select projects they would like to support with donations of $5 or more. Every donation is eligible for a tax rebate of 33%.

Boosted has some key beneficial differences when compared with other crowdfunding platforms. In order to protect the charitable status of donations, projects will are unable to offer gifts, products or other benefits in return for pledges. The Arts Foundation knows that people support projects because they want to be part of the successes of those projects, not for the direct rewards offered.

Boosted will: provide the arts community with workshops and seminars on best practice for growing arts philanthropy; offer a high level of campaign support to help grow long-term relationships with donors; make it easier to ask for money; and ensure donor confidence through the Arts Foundation’s status as New Zealand’s leading organisation in arts philanthropy.

Boosted can offer full funding solutions for some projects or can be a means of complementing other funding sources and ticket sales. Boosted offers more than just short-term funding solutions; it provides long-term relationships with donors and builds audiences.

Kei tēnei pae tukutuku ka kimi moni ētahi, ka tautoko ētahi i ngā mahi toi.

There are no gimmicks here. Your reward is the knowledge that you’re empowering an artist to create work in the spirit of generosity and the knowledge that you’re awesome. That, too. You’re mobilising a new generation of arts patrons. You’re making works of art.

All donations are given freely with no expectation of anything in return, apart from the satisfaction of supporting the project. Projects are unable to offer gifts or products so we can protect the charitable status of donations to the Arts Foundation for projects listed on Boosted.
