Supporting good in 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.

It’s an incredible asset for our region." Read more.
