Online donation applications

Trust Waikato prefers online donation application requests and provides this facility through its website. Note that multi-year donation requests, multi-year accountability reports and applications for the Significant Capital Projects Fund must be made online.

The online application process begins with an online registration. Each group will only ever need to register once, and your organisation name should be used as your username ID. On receipt of your registration request we will confirm your username and password and activate your account. You should keep this information safe and disclose it only to authorised users. If your group requires assistance with your account then contact a Trust Waikato staff member. Disclosure of your password to the staff member is NOT required. 

To find out more about the collection and use of information on donation application forms view the full Privacy Policy here.
