Community Trust seeks new funding partner
Foodstuffs (South Island) Community Trust

Major funding partner needed

Foodstuffs stands WITH its communities

The Foodstuffs (South Island) Community Trust is committed to supporting people across the South Island. We have funds available now for the right organisation.

We continue to help the South thrive by injecting hundreds of thousands of dollars into schools and education, sports clubs and small community organisations from the local scout group to hobby and recreational endeavours.

Over and above this, we periodically ask for larger organisation which has acommunity- based benefit right across the island to put themselves forward as our major funding recipient.

This is a 2-3 year funding partnership starting in 2020.

Currently we work alongside the St John Friends of the Emergency Department (FEDs) programme supporting their volunteers in the valued work they do.  As this funding comes to a close - is your organisation a good match for us?

This is what we are looking for:

  1. A charitable or community organisation which brings community-based benefit to people in all parts of the Island - you must be able to show us the positive impact you have on communities - from Bluff or Takaka and every place in between.
  2. While you might be a national organisation, if you can show us that all the funding you receive will be used within the South Island, we are interested in hearing from you.
  3.  Tell us what you will use the funding for.
  4. We want to know what your main goals are in the next 3-5 years, and how you plan to achieve them. How will the funding assist with this?
  5. We need to understand that you have a robust management and accountability structure in place, with full accountability and which demonstrates to us how these funds are having maximum impact in the community.

How do we apply?

If you believe that together the Foodstuffs Community Trust and your organisation can make communities better - then this is what we need you to do:

  1. Prepare an Expression of Interest for Funding which addresses each of the 5 points above - Your application must not exceed 800 words. We are after a high-level outline of who you are, what you do, how you do it and the impact you have.
  2. Your Expression of Interest must reach us by Friday 31 May, 2019.  Email your Expression to us. 

From this, we will select a small handful of organisations to make a presentation to the Trust Board on 12 August, 2019 in Christchurch.
