ASB Community Trust is an independent grant-making organisation supporting the work of not-for-profit groups in Auckland and Northland. Founded on the sale of its shares in ASB bank, the Trust has made grants worth almost $800 million since being formed in 1988. Any incorporated society or charitable trust in Auckland and Northland can apply for funds, provided they are a not-for-profit organisation.
Under our Community Support Grants Programme, our grants are distributed across three funding areas:
In the Places funding area we aim to fund projects that conserve, preserve and develop our region's natural and physical environment, and cultural heritage. Find out more.
In the Participation funding area we aim to encourage and support people to be engaged in their communities through participation in artistic, cultural, recreational and sporting activities. Find out more.
In the People funding area we aim to support community organisations working to facilitate improved outcomes for high need communities in our region, or support strengths-based programmes that focus on positive outcomes for children, young people and their families. Find out more Education grants
