Funding information forum in Dargaville

Funding information forum in Dargaville



ASB Community Trust will be holding a funding information forum in Dargaville next month, where community groups can find out about access to grants.

The Trust, which makes grants worth around $40 million a year to not-for-profit groups throughout the Northland and Auckland regions, holds its annual public meeting in Dargaville on September 3. The meeting starts at 1pm at Oturei Marae, on Oturei Settlement Road, Dargaville.

Trustees and senior staff will report on the year’s results and give presentations on funding priorities for the year ahead.

After the meeting, grants advisors will run an information session where community group representatives can find out if they are entitled to apply for grants. Trustees and senior staff will also be available to talk informally after the meeting, offering visitors the opportunity to share their plans and visions for the future.

Information stalls will also be run by the Charities Commission and the New Zealand Federation of Voluntary Welfare Organisations, which provides community organisations with low-cost access to computer software through the Tech Soup programme.

This will be the only Northland public meeting for ASB Community Trust this year. Those planning to attend are asked to email info@ASBCommunityTrust.org.nz with details how many people will be in their group.
