This page to be replaced with ‘Quick response grants’ and the content below to be that on the Funding landing (Which we’ll rename to funding overview).

We’ve made some changes to our funding programmes – this includes changes to our criteria, exclusions, types of grants, and frequency of granting rounds. Please ensure you’ve read the information in our funding section. Contact us if you have questions.

We provide funding to organisations and projects that enhance the Wellington region and enrich the lives of the people who live here.

MY (multi-year) funding

Our MY programme offers organisations funding for up to 5 years.

Each round of MY funding identifies a specific need in the community. The funding is allocated to a small group of organisations to run programmes that make a positive impact to fill that need.

To apply, you must meet our overall funding criteria and also criteria specific to MY Children.

For our 2017/18 financial year we will be accepting expressions of interest later in the year. We will update the website with details and announce dates through our eNews and Facebook page.
