At the heart of our community
As a community-focused trust, we provide support for local initiatives, facilities and events that bring vibrancy, connectedness, growth and economic benefits to the region. Our transformational funding process brings life to grassroots organisations and large-scale multi-million-dollar projects alike. Since our establishment in 1993, we've been at the heart of our community making a difference with our distributions. We provide funding and rebates in the Western Bay of Plenty and Tauranga regions.
What our grant recipients say
"We are grateful for TECT’s support in helping us construct the third turf. With more turf capacity we will get more young players starting a lifelong love of the sport, and we will attract more high-level hockey events to the region and the economic benefits they bring. It’s an incredible asset for our region." Read more.
