The J R McKenzie Trust is calling for big ideas for long-term change to enable our children, whānau and families to flourish. Put forward your ideas here by 30 September 2017. The call is open to anyone: businesses, social enterprises, clubs, schools, think tanks, community groups, friends, or individuals. Collaborate with your networks to build cross sector ideas.

The ideas should have a long-term focus that will bring about systemic change in New Zealand to reduce the number of children, whānau and families living in poverty in a lasting way. The J R McKenzie Trust is prepared to offer funding over a 20-year period so some ideas can be developed, tested and brought to life; submitters do not need the capability to implement the idea themselves.
