Our story

Making generosity easy

Our team wanted to find a way to make a significant impact on poverty by making daily generosity possible. As business owners ourselves, we’re so excited about making this happen through local businesses, their customers, charities and corporates all working together to pay it forward for a better future.

Scaling generosity

We believe we can meet so much more need if we use technology to enable scale. Imagine if generosity was just a click of a button away. Well now it is.

A dedicated team who help you pay it forward for a better future

Rohan McCloskey

You'll find Rohan fishing, surfing, spending time with his family, or in one of his beautiful restaurants that he owns and operates.

When we asked him about his ‘why’ behind GoGenerosity, he said:

“The idea of GoGenerosity was sparked and came to life during our Covid-19 lockdown. I started to see that there was a real need for breaking down the barrier for everyday people giving to those who need it most. I also started to see that charities needed access to more products & resources. Now, through generous people paying it forward & smart technology, charities can get access to more resources to best help the people they support.

GoGenerosity combines two of my passions, seeing businesses succeed & being able to help people, and that’s what we’re all about."

Ben Rolfe
Operations Manager

He loves spending time with his wife Emma, hanging out with friends and family, and being out on the water surfing or sailing.

When we asked him about his ‘why’ behind GoGenerosity he said;

“GoGenerosity is more than a job; it’s a calling. There is nothing more fulfilling than being a part of meeting real needs while paving the way for a brighter future!”

Aidan Lett

He’s a lover of family, the ocean, the outdoors, and a good book or movie.

When we asked him about his 'why' behind GoGenerosity he said;

“GoGenerosity is a combination of my passion for scalable business and meeting the needs of our community. It's so awesome to see local people fed, clothed and cared for through the generosity of our local community, business and charity partners. I love that by bringing together many small acts of generosity, we can have a big impact on those in need.”

James Wood
Business Development Manager

You'll catch him on the green playing a round of golf, in the ocean, or playing sport with his mates.

When we asked him about his ‘why’ behind GoGenerosity he said;

“GoGenerosity was an easy decision for me - having the opportunity to be involved with a purpose driven, globally scalable business so early on in my career was a no brainer. The cherry on top is being able to make a visible impact in our communities around New Zealand and overseas.”

Andy Fuller
Marketing Coordinator

Find him adventuring around New Zealand with his wife Renee; camping, surfing, and skating.

When we asked him about his ‘why’ behind GoGenerosity he said;

"The first time Rohan explained GoGenerosity’s values and goals, I was sold. GoGenerosity exists to help meet the need. I see the difference they are making in my local community and can see their potential to change the world."

Matt Archer
Technical Consultant

"One of the things I get passionate about is the intersection where people who are skilled in business find a tangible way to help others. GoGenerosity has defined a way to achieve this, by building a backbone of scalable technology to make all the processes involved easy and accessible to everyone. Our platform has the power to change people’s lives, strengthen communities and bring a new level of generosity across the country."

Paul Bickley
Director of Sales and Partnerships

Paul enjoys enabling people to win and succeed in their passions in life. When he's not working, he's spending time with his wife and kids. They're hugs fans of spending time in the mountains and on the water. You'll also find Paul in his garden at home and in the kitchen cooking.

When we asked him about his ‘why’ behind GoGenerosity he said;

"Working with great people in startup's is a lot of fun. In Tech, i've had some exhilarating and hair raising experiences all the while having the opportunity to build some great memories. Very few of these companies have had a mission for greater social, economic, educational impact and change. For me personally, moving at a rapid pace you often loose sight of the good and the world around you to achieve a number. My yes to GoGenerosity is because of its model's focus, it's circular in nature. The business model see's all of the customers, businesses and those in need grow due to the simple act of generosity. As a business we're enabling all our customers to meet need in their local and international communities. With GoGenerosity all of our customers experience impact, change and growth through the companies very existence."

Becky Pitt
Customer Success Manager

You'll find Becky either on a mission to find coffee, attending a yoga class, or adventuring New Zealand with family and friend! She also often listens to interesting podcasts (attempting) to learn new things.

When we asked her about her ‘why’ behind GoGenerosity she said;

“We have so many unique and diverse communities in Aotearoa, and getting to be part of a business that connect us all in this generosity eco-system is so incredibly exciting."

Kevin Menhinick
Software Engineer

You’ll find Kev listening to music, playing guitar, surfing and geeking out writing code for fun.

When we asked him about his ‘why’ behind GoGenerosity he said;

“For a long time, I’ve had the impression that the work I’d end up in would be helping people and organisations in need – so when I discovered GoGenerosity, and imagined, ‘what if I could write code and that effectively help people to be generous’, I was super excited.

Being generous is something I particularly aspire to be, so having that as a core value of the work I do further inspires me to be better at what I do – from developing my tech know-how to effectively contributing to my team here.”
