Donate to make Matariki a public holiday

With the koha we have received so far, we have been able to:

  • Host a free and informative kōrero with Stacey Morrison, Professor Rangi Mātāmua and Qiane Matata-Sipu on Matariki and what it could look like if it were a public holiday
  • Commission polling that shows the majority of people agree Matariki should be a public holiday
  • Promote our campaign through The Spinoff and Stuff in two articles that have been read and shared by tens of thousands of people.
  • Create and deliver Matariki messages on Instagram that have reached over 70,000 people

Your donations now will be put toward our long-term work to bring a Matariki public holiday into being.

We rely entirely on individual donations and grants. We receive no government funding and we don't accept money from pokies. Our team works hard to ensure even the smallest contributions go a long way. No amount is too small and all donations will help build a better, fairer, more beautiful and just Aotearoa New Zealand.

As the banks are phasing out cheques, we can no longer accept them. Please consider donating via a bank transfer or directly via our website.
