The Tindall Foundation, has a unique funding model whereby Funding Managers and Local Allocation Committees give out a significant portion of our donations on our behalf.
These regional, faith-based and environmental sector-based Funding Managers are existing organisations that support community, environment and social services across the country. They give out funds specific to two of our Programme Areas: Supporting Families and Social Services and Caring for our Environment & Preserving Biodiversity. The size of the donations they give out range from a minimum of $500 to a maximum of $5,000 to $15,000, depending on their allocated budget.
Our Overseas Funding Manager, VSA, distributes small donations on our behalf to initiatives in the Eastern Pacific that promote economic development, have high engagement with communities and have direct VSA involvement.
We have high-trust relationships with our Funding Managers who use their considerable expertise and local knowledge when allocating our funds. We are very happy with this successful approach.
If you are a local community organisation, social service or environmental organisation, it is more appropriate that you apply directly to the relevant Funding Manager. Please use the links below to determine which you should apply to. Regions that do not have appointed Funding Managers should apply directly to The Tindall Foundation.
NB: Funding Managers do have closing dates for funding rounds. You may need to contact the organisation directly for these dates. There are TWO stages to the application process. We advise applicants to submit their applications two months prior to the due date. If the Preliminary Application is accepted, applicants will be invited to make a Full Application. No late applications will be accepted.
Funding Managers fit within three categories:
- Regional: Those who accept applications from the wider community
- Faith-based: Those who fund primarily within their own networks
- Environmental sector: Those that allocate Foundation donations to particular sectors
