Applying for funding
Our strategy for 2015-19 is to work towards a more socially just and inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand.
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.
We are interested in contributing to positive, long term change.
We contribute to general operating costs and/or costs of running a project.
Because our funds are relatively small, and some of our grants are significant, the 'success rate' for applicants is low - between 3 and 7%. The total available most years is $2 - $3 million. The largest grant last year was nearly $350,000 over 3 years, and the smallest about $1,500.

The next grant round is now open; it closes on 19 February 2016.
Please note, each organisation may only apply once per calendar year.
