Skycity Queenstown Casino Community Trust Funding

15 July 2004

Two Weeks Left To Apply For Skycity Queenstown Casino Community Trust Funding

Local community groups seeking funding for their charitable causes have just two more weeks to apply for a grant in the second annual SKYCITY Queenstown Casino Community Trust funding round.

The close off date is 5.00pm Friday 30 July 2004. Trust Chairperson Mary Stamers-Smith urges community groups and charitable organisations to get their applications in before this deadline to be eligible for funding.

“The Trust will consider applications from organisations 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.

“As in our inaugural funding round last year, we expect to receive a wide range of applications from a variety of local community organisations seeking donations from a few hundred dollars through to those seeking amounts for more substantial funding requirements. “We expect to have the list of successful applicants confirmed by early September 2004 with grants being presented to those groups at a special function at the end of September,” said Mrs Stamers-Smith.

Mary Stamers-Smith is joined on the SKYCITY Queenstown Casino Community Trust by three other local trustees, Jim Ryan, Lorraine Cooper and Rex Collie.

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. 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.

For more information about the SKYCITY Queenstown Casino Community Trust or for an application form please refer to www.skycityqueenstown.co.nz or phone SKYCITY Queenstown Casino on (03)-441-0400.

Completed application forms should be posted to SKYCITY Queenstown Casino, PO Box 1242, Queenstown or delivered to SKYCITY Queenstown Casino, 16-24 Beach St, Queenstown.
