Our Telefund New Zealand team consists of dedicated and passionate callers who have experience with telefundraising for a wide variety of causes and desired outcomes. 


In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are honoured to have played a significant role in helping our clients sustain their operations when other traditional fundraising efforts were restricted.
