How is Maxim Institute funded?

As a registered charitable trust funded through donations, Maxim Institute relies on generous support from individuals, families and community trusts who share our vision and believe in what we are doing. We do not receive financial support from any government agency or political party. Since its inception in 2001, over 1700 individuals and trusts have contributed financially to Maxim Institute. Without this support we simply cannot exist.

Maxim Institute’s registration number with the Charities Commission is CC24446.

Will you consider supporting us financially?

Maxim Institute was born out of a desire to help build a better future for all New Zealanders. We saw the need for an effective and independent voice to promote sound public policy and to foster ideas and leadership that enable freedom, justice and compassion to flourish in New Zealand.

Thank you in anticipation of your valuable support.
