Fonterra grants round to close
Time is running out for applications towards the Fonterra Grass Roots Fund.
This round of closes on August 31 and is open to Waikato community groups.
Each year, Fonterra Grass Roots Fund helps more than 300 community groups nationwide, supporting projects that help maintain vibrant, healthy and safe communities.
Fonterra’s global sponsorship manager Kane Silcock encouraged Waikato groups and organisations to apply.
‘‘This is our way of giving back to the heart of the communities we live and work in,’’ he said.
Grants range from $500 to $5000 for projects that fit into one of three categories: ‘Bringing communities together’, ‘caring for our environment’ and ‘making our communities safer’.
‘‘The Fonterra Grass Roots Fund is our way of saying thank you to New Zealand, by supporting projects and ideas that bring our communities together and make them better, safer, more vibrant places to be,’’ Silcock said.
Calls for applications are open twice each year and applications received in each round are considered by Fonterra’s sponsorship team and the Auckland regional Fonterra Grass Roots Fund committee.
