Donate to IYM

how your donation will transform the future

IYM has a goal – to see more young women studying and working in the STEMM sector.


Why? Because currently they are under-represented in STEMM – yet we know that diversity and inclusivity advances innovation, creativity and problem solving. IYM is about encouraging young women from diverse geographic, economic and cultural backgrounds, to pursue STEMM study and career pathways to become our future change makers.


Your generous support is paying it forward to achieve this goal. 

IYM is a charitable trust – CC56684. All donations of $5.00 or more are tax deductible.



Your legacy- a future for tomorrow's young women

A bequest to Innovative Young Minds Charitable Trust in your will is your ultimate legacy for today’s young women. One day, a young woman will change the world because of her passion for science and technology and your bequest!

Sophie Handford, an IYM alumna, is already on her way to leading her community to change. At 18, Sophie was the recipient of Wellingtonian of the year award 2019, for her work as national coordinator for the ‘School Strike 4 Climate NZ’ and was elected as the Paekākāriki-Raumati ward councillor. Read more about Sophie and other alumna here.

It’s young women like Sophie who will benefit from your bequest.
