We have identified three funders in the Otago region:
- ECO fund — a fund that supports work that protects and enhances Otago’s environment.
- Trustpower Lend A Hand Foundation — this fund assists small charitable organisations and individuals in Dunedin and Central Otago by providing funding, mentoring or through the provision of goods/services. Funds of up to $2000.
- Central Lakes Trust — supports projects in the Central Lakes district that are beneficial to the community. The funding amount given varies.
There is also an online portal which provides a comprehensive list of funds (not just focusing on conservation) called Generosity New Zealand. It is available on a subscription basis or it can be accessed free through your local library (you just need your library card).
If you know of any other funds for the Otago region, please email us.
