2018 funding round now open!



The Auckland Airport Community Trust’s annual community granting round is once again open for applications.


The Trust is encouraging charitable organisations offering cultural, recreational and other activities that benefit the community within South Auckland to apply.  Charities, schools and not-for-profit groups operating for the benefit of residents most affected by aircraft noise are eligible.


The Trust has awarded more than $3.7 million in grants since it was established in 2003. Trust Chair Noel Robinson says that supporting communities to thrive and grow is at the heart of the Trust’s grantmaking.


“We’ve chosen to concentrate our funding efforts on initiatives that support learning outcomes for children, young people and families, as we believe this is vital for a healthy, happy and thriving community.”


Last year the trust distributed $257,565 to 13 community groups including Te Whakaora Tangata who have used the funding for their amazing resource programme, These programmes are highly relational, and provide families with critical life, parenting, and relationship skills. With Auckland Airport Community Trust’s support, our team have been able to conduct about 15 home visits each week, and run 20 Kia Kaha sessions so far this year” (Tricia Stevenson, Te Whakaora Tangata).


Applications close at 5pm on Friday 31 August, with the successful applicants to be notified in September. 


The Trust is also accepting applications for noise mitigation grants.  Information on eligibility and the application process can be found under the eligibility tab.
