Notice For Community Groups Seeking Funding

20 May 2004

Advance Notice For Community Groups Seeking Funding

The SKYCITY Queenstown Casino Community Trust will call for applications from local community groups next month in its second year of funding.

Trust Chairperson Mary Stamers-Smith said that the Trust is keen to give organisations, carrying out community assistance and development work, advance notice of its upcoming call for applications.

“Groups wanting to apply for funding may like to start thinking about projects they will require funding for now as we will be calling for applications mid-June, with the close off date for submissions being 30 July.

“The Trust considers applications from community and charitable groups planning work that will provide a demonstrable positive benefit to people in the Queenstown Lakes District Council geographic area. We support a broad range of initiatives from community projects, tourism programmes and projects that promote arts and culture in New Zealand,” said Ms Stamers-Smith.

Established in March 2003, the SKYCITY Queenstown Casino Community Trust distributed more than $200,000 to 31 successful recipients in its inaugural funding round last year. Grants ranged from a few hundred dollars through to $25,000.

Applications were received from a variety of sectors including arts, culture, entertainment, education, community, health and welfare, medical rescue and emergency, sport, recreation, life skills and tourism.

Funding by the SKYCITY Queenstown Casino Community Trust will continue each year with applications sought every June. The amount will be either 2.5% of the net profit from the operation of the casino, or a minimum of $100,000 per annum.
