Over the last decade New Zealand has faced a number of crisis situations. In each situation, the not-for-profit sector has been the first to respond and has played a critical, often unacknowledged, role in the recovery. Able to act more nimbly, the sector often fills the gaps where the government cannot go.

As the frequency of disasters increases, resources and reserves have less time to recover. The COVID-19 response has seen an unprecedented amount of collaboration in the $8.1b sector. However there is much to be done to ensure the sector remains nimble, financially sustainable, and most critically, making a measurable impact for the betterment of Aotearoa.

Amy Carter will share her insights about the sector and aspirations.

We are also delighted to be presenting our 2020 First Steps in Governance Award at this event and thank Ronald McDonald House South Island for their ongoing support.

Amy Carter

Amy Carter was appointed to her first board of a not-for-profit while at university. Over the last 28 years she has held senior leadership or governance roles in a number of iconic not for profits. Currently, she is the Chief Executive of The Christchurch Foundation, our city’s Community Foundation. Amy, her small team, and a voluntary board have facilitated over 12 million dollars of gifting to the causes within Ōtautahi since its establishment in late 2017.  Alongside this they are building an endowment programme which will provide legacy gifts for the causes within the city, forever.
