What We Fund Ngā Mea e Utua e Mātau

The difference your project makes in the community?

In line with our vision for our communities of contributing to the building of strong, happy, healthy, prosperous and more connected communities, we focus on funding projects and organisations in the four key areas of Learn, Support, Connect and Participate.

Under each of the four areas, we have identified our focus. Look at these areas to see where your project best fits.

  • Learn

    We place importance on the great start in life provided by quality education, post school learning and the need to support people as they move through different life stages.
