We’re changing to Te Rourou, One Aotearoa Foundation in 2023
Vodafone New Zealand has announced it will be changing its name to One NZ in early 2023, following the change of ownership from Vodafone Group to new owners Infratil and Brookfield in 2019.
We will soon also change our name to Te Rourou, One Aotearoa Foundation.
What doesn’t change is our mahi and goal to halve the number of youth facing disadvantage in New
Zealand by 2027, and we remain focused on creating a more equitable Aotearoa for rangatahi.
All funding arrangements and community partnerships that were previously made with Te Rourou,
Vodafone Aotearoa Foundation will simply transfer over to Te Rourou, One Aotearoa Foundation. This is a
change in name only and does not impact our relationships or arrangements in any way, and we will
continue our mahi in association with our partners.
We recently celebrated the 20-year anniversary of Te Rourou, which has now invested close to $50
million in securing a better future for rangatahi. We believe this represents the biggest corporate
philanthropy in New Zealand’s history, and this commitment will continue long into the future.
Vodafone NZ has announced the launch of One Good Kiwi, New Zealand’s newest philanthropic
initiative, designed to make giving easy and fun. One Good Kiwi has been created in collaboration
with Te Rourou and allows users to choose how to distribute the $1.2 million that One NZ donates
each year via the platform to support organisations enabling positive change for rangatahi. One
Good Kiwi will also support many Te Rourou community partners.
We will share more information about our transformation to become Te Rourou, One Aotearoa Foundation as we
get closer to the name change, but in the meantime I wanted to thank you for your continued
support of Te Rourou.
