Trust says, ap­ply if you want to make a big im­pact

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The Hutt Mana Char­i­ta­ble Trust is look­ing for big ideas.

A new round of ap­pli­ca­tions for the Trust’s com­mu­nity grants was an­nounced last week by its chair­man Ian Hutch­ings.

He said over the years there had been a steady in­crease in ap­pli­ca­tions for grants, with a con­se­quent trend to smaller grants be­ing made.

This round, ad­di­tional to the nor­mal range of ap­pli­ca­tions, the Trust would wel­come ap­pli­ca­tions to fund larger and more sig­nif­i­cant projects which of­fer sub­stan­tial ben­e­fits across the com­mu­nity, Mr Hutch­ings said.

‘‘We see it as ap­pro­pri­ate to look con­stantly for ways the Trust’s lim­ited fund­ing can best serve the com­mu­nity.’’ He said that, as in the past, there will con­tinue to be a re­gional dis­tri­bu­tion of grant funds across the four geo­graphic ar­eas the Trust serves: Porirua, Lower Hutt, Up­per Hutt and a part of Welling­ton City. This is the 12th round of grants, two be­ing held each year.

Grant ap­pli­ca­tions close Au­gust 26. They should be sent to Trust’s sec­re­tary, Ken­dons Char­tered Ac­coun­tants, at Box 31250, Lower Hutt.
