We have identified one funder in the West Coast region and this is the Trustpower Lend A Hand Foundation. The fund assists small charitable organisations and individuals by providing funding, mentoring or through the provision of goods/services. It funds up to $2000/year.
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).
