UpstreamNZ exists to strengthen the wellbeing of children and young people in Aotearoa by providing a platform that connects conscious businesses and consumers with suppliers generating funds for Good Causes supporting our next generation.
UpstreamNZ was started by two youth workers that were overwhelmed by the incredible support that was needed for children and youth, but discovered fundraising was the hardest part of trying to provide this essential service. We knew we had to think outside the box and generate a stream of funding that was an innovative and collaborative approach to the problem we were trying to solve.
We built a triple win model : Customers generate impact for young people with products and services they needed anyway. Suppliers get revenue and sustainably do good out of these transactions. Good Causes find customers and get funding when that customer or business selects them to benefit.
