Funding is currently closed


The Auckland Airport Community Trust’s annual community granting round is currently closed for applications.

As with previous years, the Trust’s funding priorities continue to be in the areas of improving literacy, and supporting and developing life skills in the Airport’s Area of Benefit

The Trust has awarded more than $4 million in grants since it was established in 2003. Trust Chair Noel Robinson says that supporting communities to thrive and grow is at the heart of the Trust’s granting.

“We’ve chosen to concentrate our funding efforts on initiatives that support learning outcomes for children, young people and families, as we believe this is vital for a healthy, happy and thriving community.”

“Since the Trust started making its annual grants, we’ve seen some amazing groups doing innovative and inspiring work,” Mr Robinson says. “To know that we’ve helped them to make a positive impact in their communities is an incredible privilege.”

To be eligible, your project or programme must benefit people living in Auckland Airport’s Area of Benefit. If you are unsure, you can check the map here. You can also read the Trust's funding criteria and the guidance notes for reference.
