Through our loved and trusted news and entertainment brands, including Three, More FM, The Edge and RadioLive, The Rock and The Breeze, MediaWorks connects with 97% of all New Zealanders. With this comes responsibility, and ours is giving back to the community by helping Kiwi kids in need.
Over the years, MediaWorks has been proud to support hundreds of charities. We've shed light on many important issues, engaging with millions of New Zealanders to raise awareness. And, with the public’s support, we’ve helped to raise millions of dollars for charity too.
The MediaWorks Foundation is our way of keeping up this good work. By partnering with charities we are able to make a wide-reaching, more focused and more meaningful contribution.
Our vision is that every child in NZ is safe, happy, and secure, and has the chance to reach their potential. By uniting the NZ public, our communities, our people and our brands we aim to achieve this vision and make NZ kids shine.
How do we do it? We partner with charities that work hard to make life better for vulnerable children and young people in New Zealand. We collaborate on projects that shine the spotlight on some of this issues that the next generation face, and engage the public to help address them.
HOW WE WORK – OUR PRINCIPLES
We bring together our communities, our people and our brands to do bright things that make our kids shine.
We develop creative strategies that engage, entertain and inform the New Zealand public, generating awareness, support and impact.
Any registered charity can submit an application for projects that support one of our objectives.
All submissions are assessed by the MediaWorks Foundation’s Managing Committee, our members and by our panel of advisors.
The MediaWorks partnership programme is exclusively for charity projects. Funds raised as a result of the partnership must be used entirely for the purpose of the project, and must not be contributed to general operating costs of the charity partner, e.g. rent, salaries, and existing programmes.
