Funding and Grants Support

The Wheelhouse

The Wheelhouse is a single point of contact for Taranaki trusts, clubs, societies and groups.  Check out the website here for the training calendar, funding support, resources and online toolkits for all types of community groups.


Generosity New Zealand

Generosity New Zealand is New Zealand's primary source of information about funding for voluntary organisations and contains over 1000 different funding schemes. It includes funding from the government, local authorities, statutory and philanthropic trusts, gaming trusts and some service organisations. Generosity is a searchable database.

There is usually a cost to register and use the site, however you can access it free of charge through the Wheelhouse website.

There are two ways to search Generosity Taranaki for potential sources of funding of your projects:

Query Search: Answer the questions that are most relevant to your project. What region, what work you do and what type of support do you want.

Keyword Search: Use the A-Z listing and enter the name of a grant, the name of an organisation or keyword.
