    ChildFund New Zealand is looking to expand its relationship with New Zealand and overseas institutional, government, corporate and individual grant donors. If you have a track record of developing and writing winning grant proposals, of providing exemplary reporting and of identifying and nurturing relationships with significant donors supporting International Development initiatives (funding levels of NZ$750,000 plus) then we would like to hear from you.
