Our Past Grants lists groups and activities we’ve supported.

See the areas we focus on for more information about the types of projects we’re particularly interested in supporting.

There are some things we don’t fund.

Our Region

Read More

For us, it’s all about the Waikato. That’s where we’re based, where we come from, and where we focus our support.

Our funding area incorporates Thames–Coromandel, Hauraki, Matamata–Piako, Waipa, Waikato, South Waikato, Waitomo, Otorohanga and Ruapehu districts, as well as Hamilton city. It includes much of the lands of the Tainui waka, and the people of Waikato, Raukawa, Hauraki and Maniapoto iwi.

Who we fund

Read More

In general, we fund not-for-profit groups that operate mainly in our region, have a bank account, annual financial statements and are an incorporated society or registered charitable trust.

There is some flexibility around these requirements. We can, for example, fund groups that are not societies or trusts. We don’t typically fund individuals.

Talk to one of our Grants Advisors to find out whether your group or project may be eligible.

Areas of focus

Read More

Trust Waikato targets communities with the highest need. We support a wide range of projects and groups, including those working with Māori, Pacific, migrant and refugee, and other ethnic communities.

There are some areas that we consider it’s particularly important to support. These are described below, and in more depth in our Grants Policy.

We’re especially interested to hear from groups and projects working within these areas in Waikato communities.

Supporting families, young people and older people

We strongly support projects that address the underlying causes of social problems, including projects that support families and protect children and older people.

Encouraging participation and inclusion

We value activities that give all people opportunities to feel part of their community, whether for education, work or leisure. We like to hear about projects that promote participation in sport, recreation, the arts, and community and cultural celebrations.

Supporting volunteers

We know that much of the work to improve the wellbeing of communities is done by volunteers. We fund activities that promote, train and support volunteers and their invaluable contributions.

Supporting iwi and Māori communities

We are committed to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and strongly support projects and groups that foster resilient and vibrant whanau, hapu and iwi. Our priorities include funding for marae development and significant Māori-focussed projects.

Preserving and celebrating cultural identity

We recognise the importance of history and community identity, and support initiatives by and for Pacific peoples and other ethnic communities.

Building resilient communities

Some Waikato communities have distinct needs – often due to their size, location or demographics. We’re keen to support initiatives that improve the wellbeing of these communities, providing the same opportunities and quality of life available to those living elsewhere. This includes working alongside groups with established networks in high-needs communities, and supporting them to access information and funding opportunities.

Strengthening the community and voluntary sector

Great work in the community requires strong and viable groups. We fund management and operational infrastructure for non-profit community groups; work with them to improve capacity and sustainability; encourage accountability and evaluation; and support collaboration and advocacy to strengthen the community and voluntary sector.

Types of Grant applications

Read More

We have four types of grant applications.

Community Response Grants
There are three general Community Response rounds per annum. These rounds close in February, June and September, with payments made to successful organisations generally 12 weeks later.

Significant Capital Projects Fund
Significant Capital Projects funding is available for grants towards capital projects with total costs of $1million or more.

Community Impact Grants
The Trust may invite applications for Community Impact Grants aimed at bringing about transformational change. Community Impact applications will be considered by the Board once they are assessed and a recommendation has been prepared by Trust staff.

Multi-Year Grants
The Trust may invite applications for Multi-Year Grant commitments in any of the three Community Response Grant rounds.

For more detail on each of these grants, please see the Grants Policy.

 

For single and multi-year donations you can apply in any one of the three rounds closing in February, June and September. Whilst paper application forms are still accepted for single year applications only, online applications are preferred.

For Significant Capital Projects funding you’ll need to apply in Round 2 (June), and applications must be completed online.

Single-year Applications

Single-year donation applications suit groups that want funding for lots of different projects, activities and services throughout the year.

So, for example, you might need funding for a new programme or service you plan to launch, as well as ongoing salaries, and volunteer and operational costs. You can make a single-year donation application to cover all of these expenses.

Most of our funding is single-year donations. Once we’ve received your application, we’ll look at what you’re asking for and decide how much funding we’ll provide.

Multi-year Applications

Trust Waikato will invite applications for multi-year donation commitments (two to three years) in any of the three general donation rounds.  Invited organisations must meet additional criteria outlined in our Donations Policy.

If you’ve already had a multi-year donation approved, you’ll need to complete a Multi-Year Donation Report online, and account at the end of each funding year.

Significant Capital Project's Fund Applications

If you want to apply for funding for a capital project that has total costs of $1million or more then you need to apply to our Significant Capital Projects Fund.

The fund is a dedicated part of our donations budget that we out aside each year for significant capital projects. Capital projects can include things like new buildings, alterations or renovations, or equipment.

We base our decisions about how much to donate towards significant capital projects on the total funding needed and the community benefit the project will deliver. We only provide a donation towards the total cost: we do not fund entire capital projects.

To apply for Significant Capital Projects funding you must apply in the Round 2 donations round. You’ll also have to provide an up-to-date feasibility study. 

You can find out more about whether a Significant Capital Projects Fund donation application is the right one for you in our Donations Policy. We also strongly recommend that you talk to one of our Donations Advisors before you apply.

Significant Capital Projects Fund donation applications must be made online.

For smaller capital projects (where the total costs are less than $1 million), you should make a single-year donation application to any of our three general donation rounds.

Completing an accountability report

If you have received a Trust Waikato donation, then you will need to provide an accountability report. The report is due either within 12 months of receiving a donation or when your group makes a subsequent application - whichever comes first. There are two ways to do this: 

  1. If your organisation is applying for another donation, fill out the accountability question on the new application form. State the amount received, how it was spent, and what was the benefit or impact was for the community. 

  2. If your organisation is not applying for another donation for some time, you will need to send us a report within 12 months of receiving your donation. Include a project summary describing how the money was spent and the impact the donation had on the community. Please provide a copy of your most recent annual financial statements.

We do not have an accountability form. How in-depth your report is, and how much information you include, should reflect the size of your project and the donation you received.

If you’ve had a multi-year donation approved, you’ll need to complete a Multi-Year Donation Report online, and account at the end of each funding year.

Providing audited financial statements

If your group is large (with annual expenses of over $1million) or medium (expenses between $500,000 and $1million), and you apply for a Trust Waikato donation, then you will need to have your annual financial statements audited or reviewed, as appropriate. If your group is a registered charity, you’ll also need to comply with the provisions in the Charities Act 2005.

Groups receiving multi-year donations must also provide audited or reviewed financial statements each year.

See our Donations Policy for more information.
