Wakatipu Community Foundation – CC55258.

Each year, we allocate funds to local organisations who operate in the climate, conservation, and biodiversity space, whether that’s through native revegetation efforts, biodiversity protection, pest eradication, waterway monitoring and more.

Funding is available to charitable organisations and initiatives on a contestable basis, with annual grant rounds open each year. Funding decisions are made by an independent distribution committee, with input and advice from the Wakatipu Community Foundation. Click here to find out about our grant criteria and application process.

We have a focus on strategic and collaborative giving so we can support the wider network of projects and initiatives needed to deliver impactful and long-term benefit.
