He Tupu Grant Program (New Zealand)
The SkyCity Auckland Community Trust is pleased to launch the He Tupu grant program.
The vision for SkyCity Auckland Community Trust is: “Communities engaged and connected, equals thriving communities”.
They want their grants to support services and programmes that focus on “Te Piko o te māhuri, tērā te tupu o te rākau – The way in which the young sapling is nurtured, determines how the tree will grow”.
The focus of grants continues to be funding the outcomes of:
The development and wellbeing of rangatahi
Solutions and decisions to support the welling and development of rangatahi
They will consider applications that support rangatahi in the following ways:
Rangatahi led initiatives which benefit them directly, their wider whānau and/or community;
Rangatahi wellbeing including mental wellbeing;
Rangatahi leading their own solutions and influenced decision making;
Supporting rangatahi while strengthening cultural diversity, social connection, a greater sense of belonging and inclusion;
Initiatives that provide and/or support pastoral care for rangatahi to thrive;
Initiatives that support whānau, cultural and community connections with rangatahi at the centre; and
Initiatives that build knowledge, skills and behaviours that strengthen whānau wellbeing.
Each funding stream will support projects that innovate, deliver, collaborate and expand services or projects in the Trust’s catchment area.
Applications will be focused on the outcomes and priorities of the Trust. Organisations that collaborate with other funding partners and partner organisations will be a priority for these grants. Trustees will be looking at projects that have the potential for future impact or scale.
The SkyCity Auckland Community Trust accepts applications from charitable organisations providing benefit to those operating from the Far North through to the Bombay Hills.
In cases where projects are delivered nationally, the Trust may consider partial funding requests for aspects of the project benefiting those residing within the Trust area. You will be asked to demonstrate the programme of work being delivered in their area.
In such cases where projects are delivered nationally, the Trust may consider partial funding requests for aspects of the project delivered within the greater Auckland/Northland area. You will need to demonstrate the percentage of the programme delivered to the greater Auckland/ Northland area
