About Mindful Money

Mindful Money is a charitable social enterprise, established in early 2018. We aim to re-orient KiwiSaver and investment funds to support social and environmental aims. Currently most funds profit from pollution and exploitation, with investments in sectors like gambling, pornography, fossil fuel production, human rights abuses and animal cruelty.

Our website went live in June 2019 and we are currently planning a series of events in October that will build awareness, empower investors and help Kiwis make positive choices to align their investments with their values through the Mindful Money website.

Our aim is to make investment a force for good.

Volunteer Programme

Volunteers gain experience in a small, growing organisation doing exciting work. References will be provided to volunteers who perform well in their role and fulfil the agreed term and responsibilities. All travel costs and expenses will be reimbursed.
