Need support towards the costs of running a community programme or public event?
A Programme and Event Grant provides support towards the costs of running a programme or event for organisations that have core objectives and activities that align with the Trust's Community Funding Policy.
A Programme and Event is a specific activity or project which an organisation runs for a specific period of time, which has clearly identified purposes and outcomes. For example; a community or regional event being hosted in Taranaki or community programmes, such as: volunteer and social services programmes, or innovative (pilot) learning programmes
If your organisation is a not for profit community organisation you may be eligible to apply.
A Programme and Event Grant will not be granted in the same year as an Operational Grant but can be granted in the same year as a Capital Grant
The Trust sets the level of funding your organisation may receive - in setting the amount the Trust will compare groups of similar size and purpose and will consider fair and equitable funding levels
When assessing a grant the Trust considers things like population served, membership, roll numbers, ability to access and raise other funds, community access and community contribution, and socio-economic factors
The Trust may consider committing funding to a programme or event for a period of more than a year, subject to specific criteria
For larger projects the Trust may ask your organisation to identify outcomes which can be measured and monitored. In such cases outcomes will be agreed with your organisation prior to the grant being made - so you will need to be able to clearly state why the activity is needed, what will be achieved and how you intend to track the difference it is making in the community. For large and significant activities, support may be provided to assist
Please note the Trust does not grant to on-gift therefore fundraising events will not be eligible for a grant.
NOTE: CHANGES TO COMMUNITY FUNDING GUIDELINES FROM 1 APRIL 2019
From 1 April 2019 we are making changes to our Community Funding Guidelines. The changes include:
- some changes to grant limits for Community Funding grants
- a stronger focus on the positive difference or impact your project will make (rather than the type of organisation applying for funding)
These new 2019 Community Funding Guidelines take effect from 1 April 2019.
They include new Community Funding Grant Limits which can be used as a guide to indicate the maximum levels of funding you can expect to be considered for, depending on the type and scale of impact of your project.
Before applying for a grant you must first meet our eligibility criteria. Take the test below to find out if you may be eligible.
