He Tangata grants

Our annual grants support organisations doing great work in communities across Auckland and New Zealand

Each May we make up to ten $5,000 grants to South Auckland schools and community groups. We do not accept applications for these grants. Instead, we ask a panel of local experts, including members of local community boards, media outlets and business associations, to help us identify ‘grassroots’ organisations to support. We are grateful to these people for their time and expertise.
