Established to help community organisations team up to achieve better outcomes, The Working Together More Fund (He Putea Mahi Tahi) is itself the result of collaboration between five funders — Wayne Francis Charitable Trust, J.R. McKenzie Trust, Todd Foundation, Hugh Green Foundation and The Tindall Foundation.
The Working Together More Fund helps groups to achieve more and better outcomes for their communities, explained Bede Martin, Project Manager: “Sometimes it’s a donation to cover the costs of exploring a collaborative initiative, or to get one off the ground. Central to grant decisions is how applicants will strengthen communities through collaborating with other community groups.”
Starting in 2009, The Tindall Foundation has made a regular commitment to the Fund’s salary and project costs, and funding pool. Through this collaborative funding effort, we hope to improve the effectiveness of community and voluntary organisations and strengthen partnerships within the community sector.
The Working Together More Fund has given out grants totalling $900,000 to over 420 collaborating groups. Among its beneficiaries is the Wellington After-Care Association, which in 2012 collaborated with the Wellington Circus Trust to offer a skills development programme for its disabled clients – an experience described as “very rewarding for all concerned” by Wellington After-Care General Manager Kervin Farr.
