About the PFRA
The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) regulates and monitors face-to-face fundraising in New Zealand. The PFRA was established by charities in 2007 as a national body to provide trust and confidence in public fundraising through effective regulation.
We raise professional and regulatory standards to ensure the long-term sustainability of the industry.
A thriving charitable sector, funded by long-term sustainable public fundraising.
To build public trust and confidence in members' fundraising activities through regulatory solutions, founded and motivated by best practice standards and industry sustainability.
Fair - regulation should be fair and transparent
Accountable - members should be accountable for their activities and actions
Sustainable - programmes should create a sustainable outcome for everyone
Impactful - fundraising should create a positive difference
The PFRA works closely with local councils throughout New Zealand to co-ordinate face-to-face fundraising.
This model has been successfully adopted in other countries around the world such as the UK and Australia.
The PFRA is a ‘not for profit’ Incorporated Society of charity members and associate agents who conduct face-to-face fundraising in New Zealand.
