What We Fund
What We Will Consider
Community and Economic Development initiatives could include:
Protecting the environment, such as re-vegetation, aﬀorestation, protection of our waterways, coastlines, pest eradication and the reintroduction of native bird species.
Promoting the permanent preservation of places of historic interest for the nation, including initiatives that encourage public awareness of our heritage.
Assistance in funding public amenities including walkways, parks, gardens, museums, information boards and recreational facilities.
The advancement of education for the benefit of the New Zealand public. We will prioritise programmes that educate youth in culture, life skills and environmental initiatives.
We will consider initiatives that provide assistance to disadvantaged groups in our society and we encourage active participation by individuals in Community organisations.
Is Your Project Eligible?
Projects must be Community lead and controlled. Our preference is to provide money and resources for speciﬁc projects. We will not provide funds towards general running costs, wages and salaries.
Any development or initiative must be economically and environmentally sustainable.
It is critical that the project brings beneﬁt to all public and encourages diversity and inclusion. The Foundation will not provide funding to individuals, sports or any closed groups.
Preference will be given to organisations who have a proven track record of ﬁnancial stability and deliverables to the community.
We would be very happy to partner with other recognised organisations who can provide matched funds or resources to ensure the success of the project.
We will require a proposal including costs (quotes may be required), speciﬁc timeframes, who will beneﬁt and how will success be measured.
We will expect to be kept appraised on the progress of the initiative and will post a case study on our website.
