COVID-19 Response

  • We are now at Alert Level 1. 

    We share the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing related to the virus. We are also reminded of the need to care for all those impacted by COVID-19.  It is during this time that we need to support our community partners, grantees, staff, trustees as well as family and loved ones.

    It’s hard to plan for the future when there are so many unknowns, but what we do know is, preventing and slowing the spread of COVID-19 is something we can all help do. At Rātā, we are making the necessary plans to keep our people and our community safe to ensure that we meet both global and local guidelines, including where necessary, having employees working from home, restricting face-to-face meetings, moving to virtual meetings and putting restrictions on our travel.

    Below is an outline of how Rātā Foundation will respond to changes to the NZ Covid-19 Levels.   We want to assure you we will remain open for funding regardless of any changes in Alert Level status and will continue to be available to answer all funding questions.  We will continue to update this page as new information comes to hand.

    • At every Covid-19 Alert Level we will remain open for funding
