2018 Grants announced

Congratulations to the fourteen local groups and charities who have between them been granted $299,631, thanks to the Auckland Airport Community Trust!

The Trust’s 2018 grants were officially announced at its annual public meeting at the Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa Marae at Auckland Airport, with a presentation made to each of the organisations by the Trustees. 

Trust Chair Noel Robinson says that making a positive social impact in areas of South Auckland most affected by aircraft noise is at the heart of the Trust’s granting. 

“This funding round was once again very competitive, which demonstrates the clear local need for these grants. The Trustees had some very tough decisions to make, but we are delighted to be supporting fourteen very worthy organisations.”

“Each initiative is striving to improve outcomes for young people and families, and make the community around the airport a great place to live, work, play and learn.

“We’re looking forward to strengthening relationships with all of this year’s grant recipients, and working together to improve lives in the area of benefit.”
