Do you need grant funding for work that you believe will make a difference to the lives of New Zealanders, through the law? Borrin Foundation is calling for great project ideas through its first Expression of Interest (EOI) round for grant funding.

The Borrin Foundation believes law is essential to a flourishing society – one that is just, inclusive, tolerant and free. The vision is of an Aotearoa New Zealand where everyone understands the role and value of the law, and everyone enjoys the protection and opportunity that it provides.

The Michael and Suzanne Borrin Foundation, a new $38 million philanthropic organisation, was launched last month. It is a generous gift from the Borrin Family to New Zealand to support legal research, education and scholarship through effective philanthropy.

The Foundation wants to hear from people who have great ideas and plans for legal research or legal education projects that will contribute to our vision.
If you share the Foundation’s vision for Aotearoa New Zealand, visit the website for more information about the 2018 EOI Round.

On the website, you can also check out the five inaugural grant recipients to get an idea of the kinds of projects the Foundation will work with.

The EOI Round is open from 14 March to 30 April 2018. All EOIs must be received by 12 noon on Monday 30 April.
