We want to support our communities now and into the future - by providing a funding programme which provides options and flexibility.
We are passionate about the difference your projects make in our community and are here to help.
We provide small and large grants to organisations across a wide range of cultural, social, environmental or community projects.
We focus on funding projects and organisations in the four key areas of Learn, Support, Connect and Participate.
In assessing applications, we take into account the outcomes for people and communities which the organisation or project will achieve.
The team at Rātā Foundation is here to guide you through the application process and beyond. Need ideas to promote your project? Look no further.
