Funding Policies to be Launched at Public Meetings

Funding Policies to be Launched at Public Meetings

This year’s ASB Community Trust annual public meetings will be important events for not-for-profit community groups, because the Trust will launch its new strategic plan and funding policies.

This will be the first opportunity to give the community details of the Trust’s funding priorities for the next five years.

Auckland public meeting

The Auckland public meeting will be held on Monday, 13 August at 2pm in the Mangere Arts Centre. Our Trustees and staff will present results from the past year and explain what will be happening in the next 12 months.

A funding fair will be held immediately after the meeting. ASB Community Trust Grants Advisors will be on hand to distribute new funding guidelines. These will explain what the Trust will fund, application requirements and closing dates.

A number of other funders will be represented at the funding fair too: the Lion Foundation, Auckland Council, the Funding Information Service, Volunteering Auckland, IRD, Portage and Waitakere Trusts, Social Development Partners with Tech Soup, the Charities Commission, North Shore Community and Social Services and the Funding Institute of New Zealand.

Kaitaia public meeting

The Northland public meeting will this year be held in Kaitaia’s Te Ahu centre on Saturday, 1 September, starting at 1pm.

Trustees and staff will again present the strategic plan and funding policies. After the meeting the funding guidelines will be available and our grants advisors will run information tables and talk with community group representatives about funding proposals.

Please RSVP

To attend one of the public meetings, please RSVP to info@ASBCommunityTrust.org.nz, letting us know which meeting you will attend and how many people will be with you.

We want our communities to be fully informed about these changes, so all the funding information will also be on our website. Those unable to attend the meetings will be able to download the funding guidelines from our website. www.ASBCommunityTrust.org.nz.

About ASB Community Trust

ASB Community Trust makes grants to groups and projects in Auckland and Northland each month. Using funds from the sale of its shareholding in the Auckland Savings Bank, the Trust has granted more than $750m since being formed in 1988.

Any incorporated or charitable trust in Auckland and Northland can apply for funds, provided they are a not-for-profit organisation.

For more details about applying, visit the Trust’s website: www.ASBCommunityTrust.org.nz

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
