EHF Community

Fiscal Host: Open Collective NZ

Funding platform for EHF community initiatives


Welcome to the EHF Community Collective!

This is a Collective belonging to the EHF Fellowship community.   

Fellows can use this Collective to fundraise, crowdfund, contribute to a shared financial resource pool,  and run campaigns. The intention is to connect the range of resources across our network, rally mutual aid and better support initiatives that enrich the EHF community as a whole.

Contributions can be made to the General Fund or to any of the Projects listed below.  Contributions to the General Fund cannot be tagged or restricted.  For the General Fund, allocation decisions are made by Fellows who are part of the Kaitiaki Group. Funds contributed to Projects will be allocated as described.  All Fellows are invited to propose Projects - for more details on how to do this, see the FAQ document.

The EHF Community Collective is currently stewarded by a Fellow-led Working Group. Current members are Andrew Hoppin, Janine Edge and Hannah Smith. They are supported by Alanna Irving as initiator of the EHF Community Collective and manager of the fiscal host, Open Collective NZ. Guided by principles of fairness, transparency and inclusivity, the Working Group is in the process of developing policies and practice for how the EHF Community Collective functions.  Our thinking so far is outlined here.

If you'd like to create a Project, get involved in the Working Group, help steward the General Fund or have any questions, please get in touch with us here
