Mindful Money is a charitable social enterprise, established in 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 fossil fuel production, human rights abuses, animal cruelty, gambling and pornography. Our aim is to make investment a force for good.
The Mindful Money website went live in June 2019 and in the first 12 months $9m of KiwiSaver funds were switched using the website. Now we are looking to build on that strong start by shifting $50m within the next year. Just as important is our awareness raising and advocacy for ethical investing, recognising that most choices to invest ethically don't go through Mindful Money's website.
Our volunteer programme provides volunteers with work experience in a defined role, with management, support, feedback and on-the-job training from highly experienced staff. 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. Volunteers need to commit to working at least 6 hours per week for at least a three month period. All roles will require working from home. All agreed travel costs and expenses will be reimbursed.
