Welcome to the EHF Community Collective!

Thanks for being here.  This is where EHF Fellows support each other to activate the Fellowship and make a difference to communities in Aotearoa.  
There are 2 ways to contribute:
  1. With money.  Support one of the Projects below - all are Fellow-initiated, led and managed.  Click on the individual Projects below for more information on what.  There are two themes for the current Projects: Our Fellowship and Acts of Kinship

  2. With your time, energy and expertise. Have an idea for a Project that needs funding? Want to fund something that is not currently listed? Keen to get involved in the mahi?  We'd love to hear from you. To submit ideas for Projects, click here.  Anything else, drop us a line here.
The EHF Collective is currently stewarded by a Fellow-led Working Group in collaboration with the EHF Team and Alanna Irving who represents the fiscal host, Open Collective NZ. You can read more about how it all works in our FAQ document.  

Seeking funding for your own venture? You are warmly invited to set up your own Collective. All Fellows' Collectives can be ‘Connected’ to the EHF Collective. Scroll down for some examples and get in touch if you'd like to know more.
