From 2013 the Trust is operating under a new five year strategic plan. This plan has been developed to help ensure we are funding effectively for the benefit of the Auckland and Northland communities.
Community Support Grants are considered under our People, Places and Participation funding areas. There are new closing dates and funding priorities.
Places funding supports projects that conserve the significant history of our region; projects and organisations that protect and enhance the environment; marae development and building projects that develop community cohesion, enhance community participation, or are of regional significance.
Participation funding supports community organisations working to grow and develop recreation and sport; creative projects and organisations fostering access to, engagement with and experience in the arts and projects that celebrate the diverse cultures of our region.
People funding supports community organisations working to facilitate improved outcomes for high need communities in our region. The fund supports strengths-based programmes that focus on positive outcomes for children, young people and their families.
The Catalyst for Change programme aims to create significant positive changes in our communities by supporting innovative projects and practices. We will identify issues facing our region and then fund organisations in a sustained way over a number of years to try and address those issues. This fund is targeted at a small number of organisations able and ready to work in a strategic, catalytic manner.
