Supporting a 'Thriving Southland'

We are your community owned grant making organisation.

From Stewart Island to Glenorchy, Te Anau to Tapanui and all the places in between, we provide a helping hand to hundreds of groups - both large and small - by providing funding for facilities, services, events, community projects and programmes. We also help people to achieve their personal goals through scholarships.

We are proud to be associated with so many people and organisations working to make the south a better place.
