Founded 25 years ago, non profit Funding Information Service (FIS) holds the most extensive collection of funding data for individuals and community groups in New Zealand. In April 2015, Funding Information Service officially became Generosity New Zealand, in line with technological advances and contemporary needs. givME (formerly Fundview) for individual funding and givUS (formerly Breakout) for group funding are available from our Funding & Community databases page.
Another welcome change is that both databases are now available for use remotely as well as in our libraries: all you need is your library card.
So, whether you are looking for funding for your community group or a scholarship for your new professional development, make sure to check what is available through these comprehensive and powerful databases.
givME is a valuable tool widely recommended by career advisors that offers access to more than 4,000 scholarships and awards for individuals for those seeking to pursue:
- Education, research and fellowships
- Arts, cultural and sporting activities
- Career change, professional or personal development
