About the PFRA

The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) regulates and monitors face-to-face fundraising in New Zealand and was created by charities to raise professional and regulatory standards.  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. PFRA is governed by a Board, which comprises: 

  • Chris Taylor, Oxfam (Chair)

  • Damon Woolley, Médecins Sans Frontières (Deputy Chair)

  • Simon Quirke, UNICEF

  • Katharine Treasure, New Zealand Red Cross

  • Kerry Johnstone, Aida for Good

  • Lauren James, Cornucopia


The PFRA works closely with the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand (FINZ) and PFRA Australia
