Proposals for Funding
Thank you for your interest in considering the Fletcher Trust. The Trust is currently unable to consider or accept unrequested enquiries or proposals for funding but instead proactively seeks out organisations with which to partner and support. The Trust remains very committed and involved in educational philanthropy but is concentrating on furthering relationships and partnerships it has already formed and will continue to identify of its own volition.
Other Sources of Funding
There are three computer databases about funding sources managed by the Funding Information Service:
Fundview provides information for community groups in New Zealand. It includes funding schemes run by the Government, philanthropic, local government, statutory trusts, local trusts and service organisations. As well as via the website, access is available at most libraries and civic buildings throughout New Zealand. You can work through the extensive list of providers and identify whether your organisation is eligible for financial assistance.
Breakout is New Zealand's primary source of information on academic, sporting, industry and arts grants, scholarships and awards available to assist individuals. The database contains over 2000 awards, scholarships and grants that include undergraduate and postgraduate study, research, professional development and travel.
CorporateCitizens provides information as to sourcing funds from businesses offering sponsoship, volunteering, mentoring, gifts in kind, loans and other initiatives.
