Rātā Foundations regions are diverse and different. Being connected with local networks and supporting developing partnerships and communities of practice is important to us.
We aim to foster a positive funding context, which endeavours to strengthen and support effectiveness and growth.
We do this by:
Multi-Year Funding Agreements
We recognise providing certainty for organisations with long term funding can bring confidence, stability and support an organisation’s ability to plan for the future. With this in mind, we are introducing multi-year funding agreements for some organisations.
Unfortunately, we do not have funding available to offer multi-year funding agreement to all organisations we support.
Priority is given to organisations strongly aligned with our funding criteria and policies. These will generally be organisations, which have been funded by Rātā Foundation for over several years.
We will continue to reflect on this process and the budgets we have available and as appropriate incorporate reviews in line with our policy review cycle.
Capacity Building Organisations
We recognise the important role community organisation’s play in our communities.
From time to time organisations may need support to develop and grow. We want to help by supporting people and organisations with their development of skills, knowledge and confidence.
Below are links to organisations who can provide tools and support to help you develop your organisation’s capacity and capability.
