Applying for funding

Our strategy for 2010 - 2014 is to focus all that we do as a Trust, including our grant making, on working towards a more socially just and inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand.

Within this, our main focus areas are Māori Development and Disadvantaged Children and their Families.

Applications with a focus on other especially marginalised groups may also be considered.

If you're interested in applying for funding, we strongly suggest you do all of the following:

Applications for 2014 are now closed.

Our next responsive grants round will open late this year with a closing date in February 2015.

Please note, each organisation may only apply once per calendar year.

If you've checked the strategy but you're still not clear whether you fit our criteria or focus, we'd love to talk to you.  Give us a call on (04) 472 8876.
