What dreams do you have for your local neighbourhood?
Funding is now available to do great things that benefit your local community. The fund is open to not-for-profit groups, communities of interest, informal and grassroots neighbourhood groups. Your idea must provide a public benefit and be free and open to the public, be organised and run by members of the community who will benefit, demonstrate community match and it must occur within the Tauranga City boundaries.
Community match means you need to demonstrate a match to the value of what you apply for, so if you apply for $2000 you need to match by $2000. Your match can be in the form of volunteer hours, other sponsorship or donations.
There are two grant levels with a total of $50k available over the year:
- Small grants up to $1000 and you can apply anytime of the year with a total of $10k available.
- Medium grants up to $10,000 and applications are invited in November and May. There is a total of $20k available for each of these funding rounds with a total of $40k over the year.
The starting point is to call to discuss your idea or complete a pre application form so we can determine if your project idea fits the fund criteria.
