Applications are now open for a new Rural Community Event Fund via Community Waikato, one of The Tindall Foundation’s regional Funding Managers.

Applications close 27 January 2017 at 4pm.

The development of this fund was inspired by numerous requests for assistance for community-led events such as family fun days, community celebrations and summer picnics along with events that have arisen in response to specific issues, e.g. a community who had experienced a number of tragic events decided to run a Family Fun Day to encourage their community to focus on the ‘good and positive’ about themselves.

Accessible and collaborative community events are an essential part of developing a sense of belonging and community. They encourage neighbourly relationships and establishing links that build and strengthen communities and families overall.

This Rural Community Event Fund has been developed to allow us the flexibility to provide financial support within a short timeframe.

Fund purpose:

Targeted toward small, rural-based organisations who provide events for families, children and their communities. It is not for commercial events. Hamilton based organisations are excluded.

Application Amount:

There will be a total amount of $5,000.00 per annum, and application can be up to $500.00 (maximum).

Application Round:

Opens: early December of each year
Closes: Mid-January each year
Distribution: By Mid-February each year
