Opportunity for Funding for Kaikoura Community Groups

Opportunity for Funding for Kaikoura Community Groups

Friday 2 March 2018

The Southern Trust and the Department of Internal Affairs are visiting Kaikoura to share information on how local community groups can access funding.

A public funding information forum will be held by the two organisations at the Suntrap Lobster Inn from 5pm on Tuesday 13 March.

The Southern Trust CEO and Trustee Karen Shea said “We are pleased that our partnership with the Suntrap Lobster Inn provide funds to assist community organisations around Kaikoura. We’re visiting the region to talk to community groups as we want them to understand exactly what activities can be funded and how to best prepare applications.”

Representatives from The Department of Internal Affairs will also be on hand to provide information on Lottery Grants Board funding and other funding options available from the government.

Licensed by the Department of Internal Affairs under the Gambling Act 2003 to return gaming machine proceeds to the community, The Southern Trust provides funding for amateur sport, education, community purposes, welfare organisations and arts and culture.

Community organisations throughout the New Zealand can apply for funding from The Southern Trust. The Trust continually reviews applications with most processed within 20 working days. Requests larger than $30,000 are reviewed at the monthly Board of Trustees meetings.

Ms Shea says community organisations considering applying for funding should firstly call The Southern Trust funding team on 0800 4 CHARITY (0800 42 42 74). “Our team can easily advise on application criteria, which can save organisations a lot of time.”
