Sectors of the Community where funds have been distributed this month:

Pub Charity supports communities all over New Zealand, limited only by local council gambling policies and gambling legislation. National through to grass root level local organisations are able to reach their objectives and benefit the people they serve through a simple, transparent, efficient, timely, non-political and independent funding process making Pub Charity a funder of choice for many organisations. Thanks to our venue operators, Pub Charity is able to make a huge difference to a wide range of local causes by returning millions of dollars back to communities where we operate.

Complete the form and send it, together with the required documents, to Pub Charity, PO Box 27 009, Wellington so it reaches us by December 18th, 5pm to be included in our January 2013 round.
