Trust Giving Principles

Auckland Airport Community Trust makes grants to organisations based on the following guiding principles:

  • Funded projects should achieve clear outcomes that can be clearly measured through a planned evaluation.
  • The Trust gives preference to projects that build a community’s capacity to lead change.
  • Grants must be acceptable to the community, support community outcomes that are not readily achievable without the Trust’s funding, add value to the community and demonstrate long-lasting value to the community.
  • Preference is given for projects that are collaborative and avoid duplication of services.
